Best Minimal invasive surgery Treatment


Conventional surgery is a process that involves cuts and stitches on the operated part of the body. But the latest trend is to go for a 'minimally invasive surgery which necessitates a very small incision to perform the surgery. Minimally invasive surgery is designed to minimize both the size of surgical cuts and trauma to surrounding soft tissues by accomplishing the same goal.

One can find several minimally invasive surgery options. These are as follows :

Knee Arthroscopy

This surgery involves making 3 and more small incisions (Cuts) in the knee, using a camera mounted on a thin flexible tube. Knee Arthroscopy is commonly used for Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tear Reconstruction, Meniscal tear repair, and also for removal of inflamed synovium.

Hip Arthroscopy

In this procedure, the Arthroscope is inserted in the hip joint through a small incision, while other tools are inserted through other cuts.

Shoulder Arthroscopy

A common minimally invasive surgery, shoulder arthroscopy also uses an Arthroscope and specialized tools to visualize the joint and perform repairs.

Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery

Minimally invasive spine surgery is also known as MISS which uses similar principles to arthroscopy. In this surgery, the tools used are different. MISS is used to treat Herniated disc treatment, spinal stenosis, decompression, fusion, etc.

Minimally Invasive Total Joint Replacement

In total joint replacement, the damaged or worn surfaces in the joint are removed or replaced with artificial joint components that are cemented. In regular joint replacement surgery, large cuts are necessary in order to expose the entire knee joint. In this procedure, small cuts or incisions are made which do not disturb the soft tissues around the knee.
