Accurate Alignment. Fewer Scars. Faster Recovery.
Medical City Dallas is committed to providing most advanced minimally invasive orthopedic surgery options for patients. Minimally invasive procedures offer an exciting alternative to conventional surgery. Our orthopedic surgeons use state-of-the-art technology that in many cases results in both shorter hospital stays and shorter recovery times which means you receive the best treatment possible and can delve back into the activities that matter most. These procedures have been proven to provide outcomes equal to those of conventional surgery and offer many significant benefits:
- Quicker recovery time—Your body can heal faster, thanks to the smaller incisions used for the surgery.
- Reduced pain—These procedures affect less of the tissue and muscle around the joint, so pain is often minimized.
- Improved accuracy in the joint alignment, helping to achieve better and faster range of motion.
- Less scarring— smaller incisions leave behind smaller scars. In fact, most of our patients don’t even notice them after the incisions heal.
Getting You Ready for Joint Replacement Surgery
- Free pre-operative classes are available for all total hip replacement and knee replacement patients to learn about your surgery, hospital stay, and tour the unit where you will be admitted for your care.
