Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is performed arthroscopically using a camera and miniaturized instruments. Traditional invasive surgery requires long incisions through the muscle. Instead, MIS allows surgeons to perform these surgeries by inserting small tubes through smaller incisions to visualize the internal structures. By using video-assisted equipment during the procedures, the physicians at the Fort Worth Hand Center have higher visualization and magnification of the internal structures. This allows for a more accurate assessment of the internal damage and more focused surgical precision.
Minimally invasive surgery benefits may include:
- Significantly less post-operative pain
- Less damage to tissue and less stiffness during healing
- Faster recovery time and faster return to everyday functions
- Less scaring and sensitivity around the scar
- Very small “key hole” incisions and reduced incision size
- Higher precision with video assisted visualization
Minimally invasive hand and upper extremity orthopedic surgery help patients in treating:
- Fractures and Dislocations
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Congenital and acquired deformities
- Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis of the hand, wrist and elbow
