Diagnostic & Minimally Invasive

Minimally invasive procedures are now being used to treat an increasing number of orthopedic conditions, including fractures, bone infections and cartilage replacement. In minimally invasive procedures, your physician makes one or more incisions, each about a half-inch long, to insert a tube. The tube or tubes let your physician slip in tiny video cameras and specially designed surgical instruments to perform the procedure.

When you have minimally invasive surgery, you're likely to lose less blood and have less postoperative pain, fewer and smaller scars, and a faster recovery than you would after open surgery. Depending on your condition, you may need only a short hospital stay.
