Orthopedic Surgery Q & A

What is orthopedic surgery?

Orthopedic surgery is a type of surgery to repair musculoskeletal injuries affecting bone, muscles, ligaments, tendons, cartilage, and other types of tissue that help you move. Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center specializes in orthopedic surgery to treat:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Knee pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Hip pain

Joint pain in these and other regions often comes with stiffness, inflammation, numbness, muscle weakness, and other symptoms that make life more difficult. 

If you struggle to work, exercise, sleep, or complete daily tasks because of musculoskeletal pain, the experts at Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center perform an in-depth evaluation, which may include imaging procedures. 

When is orthopedic surgery necessary?

Orthopedic surgery is seldom the first option for treatment. While surgery is often useful for controlling or minimizing tissue damage and reducing pain, nonoperative procedures treat you effectively in many cases without the complications of an operation. 

At Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center, the team encourages you to try nonoperative treatments before they start planning your orthopedic surgery. They might add one or more of these treatments to your individualized plan:

  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Joint injections
  • Regenerative therapies
  • Medications

When treatments like these do not provide significant pain relief, orthopedic surgery may be the next step. The team discusses your options and recommends the surgeries most likely to take away your discomfort. 

What are my options for orthopedic surgery?

Preva Surgicare - Imperial Surgery Center offers many of the latest evidence-based orthopedic surgery techniques. All orthopedic surgeries available at the practice belong to one of these two categories, each with their own benefits:

Minimally-invasive surgery

Minimally-invasive surgery is often the preferred approach because of its minimal recovery time, scarring, and postoperative pain. 

It involves small incisions that heal faster than larger, conventional surgical incisions along with the use of an arthroscope. An arthroscope is a camera that projects a real-time image of the inside of your joint onto a monitor.

Conventional orthopedic surgery

Conventional surgery involves larger incisions than minimally invasive surgery and a direct view of the insides of your joints. This may be your only option if you’re not a candidate for minimally invasive surgery.
