Minimally Invasive Treatments

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

At London Bridge Orthopaedics, our leading surgeons and state-of-the-art technology allows us to offer a wide range of minimally invasive treatments for musculo-skeletal problems, such as:

  • Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ALIF) – for severe back pain
  • Arthroscopic capsular release – for frozen shoulder problems
  • Arthroscopic decompression – to treat shoulder impingement
  • Arthroscopy – for knee, shoulder, ankle, hip, elbow or wrist repairs
  • Enhanced Recovery Pathway – following hip and knee replacement surgery
  • Kyphoplasty – for vertebral body compression fractures
  • Micro Endoscopic Discectomy (MED) – for herniated disc back pain
  • Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement – for arthritis of the hip
  • Needle aponeurotomy – for  contracted fibrous skin tissue in the hand
  • Percutaneous vertebroplasty – to treat vertebral fractures in the spine
  • Unicompartmental knee replacement – for osteoarthritis of the knee
  • X-stop implantation – a titanium implant for lumbar spinal stenosis pain
