Minimally Invasive Procedures in Detroit and Southeastern Michigan
At DMC Medical Group, we provide minimally invasive procedures in Detroit and southeastern Michigan for sports injuries and other orthopedic conditions. Minimally invasive surgery has become increasingly more common over the past few decades, with new research and technologies that have led to more advanced and improved methods of joint replacement, arthroscopic repairs of injuries, microscopic treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, and more.
Minimally invasive surgical procedures are used to provide an improvement in the quality of life for patients in need of surgical interventions. The advantages of minimally invasive surgery over traditional surgery are not limited to just physical benefits, but financial and even psychological benefits as well, providing an overall more positive experience for patients who need surgery.
Traditional surgery often requires a large incision and causes significant trauma to the soft tissue surrounding an injury. Minimally invasive surgery, however, utilizes a smaller incision, causes less trauma to the surrounding soft tissues, and has less risks, less post-operative pain, and a shorter recovery time than traditional surgery. Sometimes also referred to as “keyhole surgery,” minimally invasive orthopedic surgery prevents surgeons from having to expose the entire joint through a large, open incision, and instead use small, targeted incisions that only address the problem area.
Some of the minimally invasive sports medicine and orthopedics procedures that our specialists can perform include:
- Anterior approach hip surgery
- Arthroscopic elbow, hip, knee, and shoulder surgery
- Arthroscopic revision procedures
- Minimally invasive joint replacement
