Fewer Scars. Faster Recovery.
Medical City Dallas is committed to providing 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.
- 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 Orthopedic Surgery
Free peri-operative classes are available through The Joint Clinic for all total hip replacement and knee replacement patients so you can learn about your surgery and hospital stay.
- Classes are held the first three Wednesdays of the month at 10:00am as well as at 6:00pm on the last Wednesday of the month, in order to accommodate the working individual. Classes meet in the E building Classroom #1.
- To register, call (972) 566-4514 and leave your name, surgery date, surgeon's name and the date of the class you would like to attend.
- If you are unable to attend the class, check out this short video about your total joint replacement stay here at Medical City.
Taking Care of You After Your Orthopedic Surgery
Pain management is of utmost importance. Our orthopedic and joint replacement program staff closely monitor your comfort levels while encouraging therapy to ensure a faster recovery.
Medical City Dallas also assists our doctors in monitoring and preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), a known complication of surgery, along with other possible post-surgery complications. We also encourage pre-printed orders to help assist with each surgeon's plan for his or her patient. Lastly, we value and depend on immediate feedback from patients in order to maintain the high standard of care that we know you expect from us.
