Minimally Invasive Trauma Surgery
When you think about a surgery, it is but natural to think about pain, because it does involve a lot of knife work, stitches and blood loss. But then, it is a well known fact that you will have to go through some pain to improve the quality of your life. Nevertheless, if there still is a way out to have a less painful treatment, what could be better than that? Thanks to the advanced research and technology that have introduced minimally invasive surgeries.
Minimally invasive trauma surgery is a further advancement which has proved its potential with a 100% success rate in the field of orthopaedics. All surgeries including Knee, Hip, Shoulder and Spine Surgeries are performed with a minimally invasive trauma surgery.
How it’s done
A minimally invasive trauma orthopaedic surgery is done by making two or more small incisions, and inserting the surgical tools through these incisions. A thin flexible tube called arthroscope, with an attached camera is inserted for the doctor to have a zoomed in view of the surgical site. If you consider a comparison of the traditional orthopaedic surgeries with minimally invasive surgeries, the goal is same for both, but the incision in minimally invasive trauma surgery involves faster healing and function of the joint along with lesser risks.
A minimally invasive joint replacement is done by eliminating the decayed part of the bone and cartilage, replacing it with the artificial joints that are screwed to the surgical tools. However, not everyone who needs a Joint Replacement Surgery is an ideal candidate for a minimally invasive trauma surgery.
Want to know if you are a good candidate for a minimally invasive trauma surgery?
If you’ve had an injury that has caused your joint to have a fracture or a condition that has possibly caused an infection that’s spreading, you can get a Consultation with Dr. Madhu Thumu, who can guide you through the entire procedure and determine if you can get it done.
Also for a basic understanding of what apart from normal orthopaedic injury, can result in the need for a minimally invasive trauma surgery are:
- Repairing a rotator cuff tear
- Removing a bone spur
- Removing an inflamed tissue
- Hip joint infection
- Hip dysplasia
- Hip injury
- Treatment for a herniated disc
- A disc decompression
- A spinal fusion
- Treatment for spinal stenosis
- Meniscal tear correction
- ACL reconstruction
- Removing inflamed synovium
- Bone infection
