Bergen County Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Surgery
As the name suggests, this type of orthopedic surgery encompasses a minimally invasive approach, without cutting through tendons or muscle. Minimally invasive procedures allow joint repair or replacement surgery to be done on an outpatient basis, so patients can return home the same day as their surgery!
In minimally invasive procedures, a flexible, fiber-optic scope is inserted into the joint using a small incision. Dr. Robert A. Kayal and his team of surgeons view the affected area on a video monitor, and perform expert diagnosis, evaluation and repair of damaged tissues such as ligaments, menisci or cartilage.
Patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery enjoy reduced trauma, since the joint does not have to be accessed through a traditional open incision. In addition, these 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, and an earlier return to work and daily activities.
