If you’ve been living with chronic pain and conservative treatments aren’t doing anything to ease your symptoms, you may be a candidate for orthopedic surgery. But where can you go to find an experienced surgeon to handle the procedure? If you’re in Durham, North Carolina, or the surrounding area, you won’t need to look far—the fellowship-trained ortho surgeons at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic are here to help you achieve the long-awaited relief you deserve.
Offering Minimally Invasive Alternatives to Open Surgery
Something that sets us apart from many other providers is that our ortho surgeons have extensive experience performing minimally invasive procedures. When compared to traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgery requires smaller incisions, which in turn:
- Lessens pain
- Reduces the risk of complications
- Shortens recovery times
- Causes less scarring
Of course, not every surgery can be completed using a minimally invasive approach. In some instances—such as when the nature of the procedure requires a larger incision, or when the patient has excessive amounts of scar tissue—we will recommend open surgery instead. If that’s the case for you, have no fear—our ortho surgeons also have considerable experience performing traditional procedures.
