Minimally Invasive Surgery at Dallas Orthopedic Associates

Minimally invasive surgery means fewer cuts, incisions and stitches. In short, it is a simpler, shorter and faster surgical method used for treating orthopedic conditions in knees, spines and feet – if you compare the timelines and incisions in a traditional open surgery.

This surgical method is ideal for patients who need emergency treatment, but want to avail short hospital stays and less stress during the medical procedures.

However, only an expert orthopedic professional, specifically, a minimally invasive surgery specialist can decide if you qualify for the procedure.

Benefits of Minimally Invasive Surgery

All patients who have experienced a minimally invasive surgery have reported the following benefits during their postoperative follow up appointments:

  1. Less anxiety and stress before the procedure
  2. Less complications during operation and lower stress on immune system
  3. Less scarring, least incisions
  4. Less post-operative pain and disturbance
  5. Shorter hospital stays and faster recovery
  6. Highest success rates

Why Expert Minimally Invasive Surgeons in Dallas Recommend This Option

The advantages of this surgical method lie in the overall process and approach we follow at Dallas Orthopedic Associates. Here is a detailed breakdown of its benefits for patients:

Before a minimally invasive surgery

For most of our patients, a minimally invasive surgery was the ideal option because they could avail this medical procedure even during emergencies after injuries and accidents.
For some patients, we simply ask for a medical record, the latest and/or recent blood test and an X Ray.
Less documentation means less paperwork, which results in treatments starting sooner than usual open surgery cases. The whole process is absolutely frictionless and quick at Dallas Orthopedics that patients have mentioned that they were not overwhelmed while preparing for the procedure.

During a minimally invasive surgery

As an orthopedic medical procedure with high success ratios, a minimally invasive surgery requires less cuts and incisions on the affected areas.
And what’s the result?
Patients have received less stitches, and experienced less pain than they had otherwise felt in other surgical procedures. This is ideal for working moms, athletes and other professionals whose job tasks involve physical effort and movement.
Considering the time required for such a surgery, patients opting for a minimally invasive operation have had shorter hospital displays. The average time is 3 days; in fact, some patients receive a discharge permission letter within 2 days of the procedure.

After a minimally invasive surgery

All characteristics of a minimally invasive surgery round up to one specific, and most important health impact: it imposes less stress on a patient and his/her immune system. This means the surgery is less painful and takes shorter average recovery time.
This also means you don’t need as many sessions of physiotherapy, medicines and supplements to return to personal and professional activities as you would otherwise.
