Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure. It allows orthopedic surgeons to look inside the body. Providers can diagnose and repair injuries to the joints or the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and cartilage in the body.
During the surgery, the surgeon makes a series of button-hole-sized incisions near the injured or diseased area. Then the surgeon inserts a thin tube holding a micro-camera into each incision. As the surgeon guides the camera through the affected area, the camera projects video images onto a monitor.

Anterior hip replacements have fewer restrictions.
The anterior approach to total hip replacement is a minimally invasive procedure that allows people to get back to their active lives without restrictions.
The anterior approach procedure is popular for its potential benefits. During the anterior approach procedure a small incision is made on the front of the upper thigh, which allows the surgeon to spread the muscles and work through the natural spaces between them. This technique does not disturb the gluteal muscles or detach muscles from the pelvis or the femur. Since the muscles are not cut, healing and recovery occur […]
