Minimally Invasive Treatments

Where possible, London Bridge Orthopaedics uses minimally invasive surgery and the latest medical techniques to optimise clinical success and patient comfort. By using small incisions and cameras (eg, keyhole surgery), as well as advanced surgical skills, these procedures can produce various benefits for orthopaedic patients, including:

  • Day-case surgery rather than hospital-based surgery
  • Less blood loss
  • Less pain
  • Less scarring
  • Reduced recovery times
  • Reduced surgical trauma to the muscles
