MINIMALLY INVASIVE ORTHOPAEDIC SURGERY
As its name suggests, minimally invasive surgery involves minimal disruption to surrounding tissues, and no cutting through tendons or muscle. Minimally invasive procedures allow orthopedic surgery to be done on an outpatient basis, so patients can return home the same day as their procedure!
In minimally invasive or “arthroscopic” procedures, a small fiber-optic scope is inserted into the joint through a small incision. Dr. Robert A. Kayal and his team of orthopedic surgeons view the area on a video monitor, and perform expert diagnosis, evaluation and repair of damaged tissues such as cartilage, menisci and ligaments.
Patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery enjoy reduced trauma, since the joint is not accessed through a traditional open incision. In addition, these NJ orthopedic procedures involve less blood loss and smaller surgical scars. Patients who undergo minimally invasive surgery also experience reduced postoperative pain, and typically require less pain medication. Other procedure benefits include:
- Shorter hospital stays
- Faster rehabilitation periods
- Greater preservation of normal anatomy
- Earlier return to work and daily activities
