Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Surgery
EXPERIENCE A SHORTER RECOVERY PERIOD & LESS POST-OPERATIVE PAIN
Over the past few decades, incredible advancements in medical technology have allowed orthopedic surgeons to perform complex surgeries with minimally invasive techniques. Rather than using long incisions that cause substantial soft tissue trauma to the area surrounding an injury, minimally invasive procedures use smaller surgical incisions while accomplishing the same surgical goals. For orthopedics, minimally invasive techniques mean the difference between exposing an entire joint or injury through large, open incisions and only needing small, targeted incisions that address only the problem area. Minimally invasive techniques are favored because there is less risk during surgery, less post-operative pain, and improved recovery outcomes.
