Minimally Invasive Surgery

Minimally Invasive Surgery emphasizes procedures with minimal incisions and minimal trauma to bone and tissues. Think of it as being similar to what arthroscopic surgery did for knee joint surgery. Patients healed faster with less swelling and discomfort vs. traditional knee surgery. The objective is to cause as little damage to the surgical site as possible so you will heal faster and as pain free as possible. The use of the surgical microscope allows for more accurate incisions so tissues "fit" together closer for better and faster healing. Microsurgical instruments are smaller, more delicate and sharper, which cause less trauma. This minimizes the surgical field and minimizes tissue trauma so you recover more quickly. All these things lead to a more comfortable experience for you.
