Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation
Orthopaedic surgeons have always been at the forefront of introducing new surgical procedures and technologies to improve patient care. The role of Minimal Invasive Surgery (MIS) in orthopaedics is substantial. The goal is to decrease surgical trauma, bleeding, recovery duration and hospital length of stay and postoperative morbidities. Scars are cosmetically more appealing without compromising surgical objectives. MIS may offer expanded treatment options.
Injuries and disorders of the musculoskeletal system cause pain and loss of function, thereby leading to disability. The goal of rehabilitation medicine is to restore function in individuals with disability. Technology has always been central to the rehabilitation of patients, and the use of technology has never been greater than it is at present.
