Arthroscopic and Reconstructive Surgery
With today’s advanced surgical techniques and technology, Dr. Hurbanis helps his patients achieve the best outcomes possible for their condition through arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery. Details include:
- Arthroscopic surgery is less invasive than traditional surgery and involves inserting tiny surgical instruments through small incisions to repair or remove damaged areas of the hip or knee. Typically this results in less pain and faster healing.
- Reconstructive surgery is often an effective treatment for repairing damaged joints and restoring function for patients suffering from severe forms of arthritis and experiencing pain, joint deformity and mobility issues.
