How We Help You with a Minimally Invasive Surgery
Minimally invasive surgeries represent a cutting-edge approach to orthopedic procedures, aiming to achieve surgical goals with smaller incisions, reduced tissue disruption, and quicker recovery times compared to traditional open surgeries. Our orthopedic centers are at the forefront of this technological advancement, offering a range of minimally invasive procedures to address various musculoskeletal conditions.
Key Features of Minimally Invasive Surgeries:
- Small Incisions: One of the primary features of minimally invasive surgeries is the use of small incisions, often just a few centimeters in length, compared to larger incisions in traditional surgeries.
- Specialized Instruments: Minimally invasive procedures involve the use of specialized instruments, including tiny cameras and miniature surgical tools. These instruments are guided through the small incisions to perform the necessary surgical tasks.
- Reduced Tissue Trauma: Unlike open surgeries, minimally invasive approaches aim to minimize damage to surrounding tissues. This can lead to less pain, reduced scarring, and quicker healing for patients.
- Faster Recovery: With smaller incisions and reduced tissue trauma, patients undergoing minimally invasive surgeries typically experience faster recovery times compared to traditional open surgeries. This can lead to shorter hospital stays and quicker return to normal activities.
- Targeted Precision: The use of advanced imaging technologies, such as fluoroscopy or endoscopy, allows orthopedic surgeons to visualize the surgical site with exceptional precision, enabling targeted and accurate interventions.
Conditions Treated with Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Surgeries:
- Arthroscopy: Used for joint-related issues, such as repairing torn ligaments, removing loose cartilage, or addressing joint inflammation.
- Spinal Surgery: Minimally invasive techniques can be employed for spinal procedures, including discectomy, fusion, and decompression, reducing the impact on surrounding tissues.
- Joint Replacement: Some joint replacement procedures, such as minimally invasive hip or knee replacements, involve smaller incisions and modified surgical approaches for faster recovery.
- Fracture Repair: Certain fractures can be treated with minimally invasive techniques, minimizing disruption to soft tissues and facilitating quicker healing.
