Minimally Invasive Orthopedic Surgery
Minimally invasive techniques can decrease recovery time, speed healing and reduce scarring for many patients in need of joint replacement and repair. St. Joseph Hospital is on the forefront of these techniques, which require advance training and skills by the orthopedic surgeons and hospital clinicians, and sophisticated medical instrumentation.
St. Joseph Hospital is equipped with computer-guided navigation systems such as the Ci® Essential System, innovative motion-preserving devices and the latest generation of longer-lasting, more flexible implants. Minimally invasive surgeries are performed in state of the art "Smart ORs," so named because of their advanced imaging and real-time connectivity to the Lab, Radiology, Medical Records and off-site consultants.
