Our fellowship-trained and board-certified orthopedic surgeons at EmergeOrtho: Blue Ridge Division consistently deliver exceptional orthopedic care to the residents of Asheville, Arden/Fletcher, Hendersonville, and the surrounding communities.
For some acute injuries, wear-and-tear degeneration, and chronic conditions, conservative treatment methods may not always produce the desired results. Dedicated to providing our patients state-of-the-art treatments and the highest possible level of care, our surgeons offer minimally invasive surgery for certain candidates when surgery is absolutely necessary.
In minimally invasive surgery, surgeons often use special tools such as endoscopes, which are small cameras for real-time surgical imaging, to perform surgery within a very tiny incision area. Requiring an experienced, specialty-trained surgeon, minimally invasive surgery offers many benefits unlike more traditional, invasive surgeries, including:
- Quicker recovery than traditional surgery
- Lower risk of complications and infections
- Less pain after surgery due to muscle-sparing techniques
- Less scarring due to small incisions
At EmergeOrtho: Blue Ridge Division, our highly skilled minimally invasive surgeons have undergone specialized training in minimally invasive procedures for a variety of orthopedic injuries and conditions. Our surgeons are medical experts who are dedicated to helping our patients by using their advanced training and education to assess, diagnose, and treat orthopedic conditions or injuries and can perform a variety of procedures using minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as:
- Arthroscopy of the hip, knee, shoulder, and wrist
- Minimally invasive joint replacement surgery
- Minimally invasive spine surgery
