Joint arthroscopy uses a thin tool specially designed to investigate the internal structures of the joint, and allowing for minimally invasive removal or repair of damaged tissues. This procedure allows our surgeons access to interior damaged tissues while leaving the surrounding healthy tissues in tact, resulting in less area in recovery and promoting faster healing. Arthroscopy allows for minimally invasive diagnostic and reconstructive surgery in all joints of the body, restoring mobility and function, extending the life of the joint, avoiding invasive surgery and replacement. Using a small camera and specialized tools the best orthopedic surgeons in Joliet, Illinois avoid damaging healthy tissue in the injured area, allowing for targeted restoration, and reducing recovery times.
From Diagnosis to Treatment to Recovery, Our Team is There for You
Arthroscopy is used as a diagnostic tool, allowing for detailed images of the injured area, and as a surgical tool for minimally-invasive reconstructive surgery. We specialize in hip, hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, hip, knee, ankle and foot arthroscopy, and pride ourselves on utilizing the best orthopedic tools and methods, such as smoothing or removing scar tissue, torn cartilage, bone spurs, and anti-inflammation techniques. Our team’s experience and dedication to combining modern and trusted reconstruction techniques make us the top orthopedic office with the most trusted orthopedic surgeons in Joliet, Il.
Hip Arthroscopy and Reconstructive Surgery
If you are experiencing hip dysplasia, snapping-hip, or femoroacetablar impingement, then you already know just how inconvenient it is having to rearrange your daily life to accomodate for the pains and loss of mobility that accompany such conditions. But you don’t have to suffer in silence. We’re here to help. Because the hip is one of the largest, most complex joints in the body, each patient requires special care to ensure that the most effective treatment options are pursued. The first step is arthroscopy, a careful diagnosis that will help establish the exact cause of your pain and discomfort that can reveal factors that are invisible in other forms of diagnostic imaging like MRIs while also allowing the surgeon to perform minor surgical repairs to help with bone spurs, extract inflamed tissue, or even remove torn cartilage, meaning you can begin your journey toward a happier, healthier more mobile life just by beginning your diagnosis. Because it’s less invasive, reconstruction is often recommended for our younger patients, over replacement, but some conditions can’t be fully remedied by hip reconstruction, but luckily when work with us, you’ll be in the trustworthy hands of the top orthopedic surgeon in Joliet.
Joint Replacement Surgery
When a joint needs replacement, and there is no conservative treatment that can help, trust the best joint replacement surgeons in Joliet, Illinois. We specialize in partial and full joint replacement surgery, including the most common procedures: hip and knee replacements. Our replacement surgeries aim to provide you with the greatest relief while pursuing the least invasive means necessary. For hip replacements, your surgeon will approach the hip through the front of the body, since there’s less muscle and tissue than is found on the back or side, and this allows for a smaller incision, less disruption of tissue, and faster healing. Because these procedures are less invasive, this often allows you to benefit from cheaper costs, faster recovery time, shorter hospital stays, and reduced opportunities for secondary complications and injuries.
Cartilage Replacement in Knees
Due to general wear and tear, and the inability of our bodies to replace or repair our own cartilage, we all suffer loss of lubrication in our knee joints as we age, which is what makes knee replacement such a common procedure in later years. Some of our patients experience degeneration before they are ideal candidates for full joint replacement. But that doesn’t mean there’s nothing you can do to help yourself feel better now. It’s our mission at IOI to work earnestly to help every individual receive the sequence of treatments that will yield the best results with minimally invasive approaches first. For younger patients (age 20-40), we don’t typically recommend knee replacements, since the procedure lasts from 10-15 years, so instead, you may be eligible for cartilage transplantation. This allows you to enjoy the benefits of the Carticel Transplant Procedure, which will have you increasing mobility, while reducing stiffness and tension, without having to undergo the more invasive knee replacement.
Post-Surgery Care: You’re Not Alone
And our journey doesn’t just end after the replacement. It’s our mission to provide our community with ongoing support throughout the healing process, including follow-up physical therapy programs we design with your specific needs in mind. Because we want to be the best, most reliable and effective orthopedic office Joliet has to offer.
