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.
