Every year, tens of thousands of people undergo hip replacement surgery. One of the major reasons is the wearing down of the hip joint. This is most often due to the effects of osteoarthritis; however, other health conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, bone tumors and avascular necrosis – a condition that causes loss of bone due to insufficient blood supply – can also lead to problems with the hip joint. Keeping your hips in healthy condition can help you avoid this surgery.
How Does Endoscopic Surgery Work?
Endoscopic surgery uses minimally invasive techniques to access key areas of spine, neck, or back injuries so that they can be repaired by one of our highly trained surgeons. The surgical opening is so small and precise, that most people refer to their spine treatment as a "band-aid surgery."
Because it's such a small area of treatment, your overall recovery time is drastically shorter compared to conventional spine surgeries. There are also far fewer complications at play. In fact, you don't even have to go to a hospital to complete the procedure½it's performed as an outpatient visit right here in our private surgery center.
With relatively fast recovery times, you won't have to plan for days spent off of work or prescriptions to keep up with. In most cases you can perform normal daily activities after an extremely short recovery period. Endoscopic surgery is perfect for people who need long-lasting pain relief yet still desire an active lifestyle.
