For over 60 years, Hinsdale Orthopaedics has been delivering exceptional healthcare to patients throughout the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area. We have over two dozen highly-skilled physicians who engage in minimally invasive surgery, arthroscopic surgery, robotic and computer-assisted surgery, etc. From the nonsurgical treatments to minimally invasive surgery, Hinsdale Orthopaedics takes a customized approach to treat the broad range of problems patients can experience. The greater part of our nonsurgical approaches like injections and physical therapy are conducted on an outpatient basis. That’s also the case with minimally invasive surgery. These procedures are also most likely to be performed on an outpatient basis, as well. That’s why whenever our Chicago neighbors require minimally invasive surgery, Hinsdale Orthopaedics is the only name they need to know.
Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery
Furthermore, when it comes to the treatment of our Chicago patients’ spines, Hinsdale Orthopaedics has a comprehensive approach to its assessment and procedure. Our fellowship-trained orthopaedic spinal surgeons focus exclusively on spine surgery, which also includes minimally invasive spine surgery. In fact, it is well-known that the surgeons and practitioners at Hinsdale Orthopaedics have served as a referral center for most of the complex cases of the human spine. Because minimally invasive spine surgery does not involve a long incision, it eliminates the possibility of damage to muscles surrounding our Chicago patients’ spines. Consequently, this results in less pain after surgery and a quicker recovery time. Minimally invasive spine surgery is also more common these days because it is often used for common procedures such as decompression and spinal fusion.
It is during minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) that our physicians use specialized instruments to better access the spine though small incisions. This technique was first developed in order to treat spinal problems with less injury to the muscles surrounding the spine. Other advantages include smaller incisions, less bleeding and shorter hospital stays. Moreover, since minimally invasive surgery does not disturb muscles and soft tissues, the post-operative pain is less than pain experienced after traditional surgery procedures. Additionally, advancements in pain control also make it easier for physicians at Hinsdale Orthopaedics to manage and relive pain for their Chicago patients.
