Minimally Invasive Procedures
Our Latest Advancements:
Anterior Hip Replacement
The anterior approach hip replacement is a muscle-splitting approach, meaning that the surgeon gets to the hip between two muscles, rather than by removing and then reattaching a muscle. The advantage to Anterior Hip Replacement is potentially less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility.
Custom Fit Visionaire Knee Replacement
The Visioniare system utilizes patient’s MRI and X-Rays to design and create customized surgical instruments based on their unique anatomy. Using computer-guided precision the surgeon precisely positions the knee implant during surgery avoiding misalignment. Thus reducing time under anesthesia and the risk of misalignment that can cause it to wear out before its time.
Partial Knee Replacement
Partial knee replacement surgery removes damaged tissue and bone in the knee joint and replaces the area with a prosthetic implant.
Shoulder Arthroscopy Rotator Cuff Repair Procedure
The rotator cuff is a group of four tendons and the related muscles that stabilize the shoulder joint camera and allow you to raise and rotate your arm. Rotator cuff surgery may be performed laparoscopically or through an open procedure, depending on the type and severity of the condition. Both procedures are performed under general anesthesia and are aimed to reduce post-operative pain and speedy the recovery time.
Total Shoulder Replacement
Total shoulder replacement, also known as total shoulder arthroplasty (TSA), is a tremendously successful procedure for treating the severe pain and stiffness that often result at the end stage of various forms of arthritis or degenerative joint disease of the shoulder joint. The actual surgery involves replaceing the damaged humeral head (or joint “ball”) with a metal ball, and putting a new smooth plastic surface on the glenoid (called the “socket”). This technique requires the replacement of the ball component only.
