Minimally invasive surgery: less pain,
more rapid recovery.
1. Minimally invasive Total Hip Replacement;
Traditional “open” surgery requires incisions
long and deep enough to allow the surgeon full access to
the problem area. The larger and deeper these surgical
incisions are, the longer and more painful it is for patient
recovery. Minimally invasive surgery involves small punctures
or incisions (often 2 inches or less) to insert a tiny
lens/scope which displays the patient’s interior
on a video monitor. Special surgical instruments are then
inserted in the small opening to perform the procedure.
Dr. Granatir employs Minimally Invasive surgery
techniques whenever advisable. These enable successful
results with patients experiencing less trauma and far
faster recoveries particularly with knee, hip, shoulder
and wrist injuries.
open rotator cuff complete repairs with just a 2” incision;
3. Arthroscopic Anterior Cruciate Ligament and meniscus
(cartilage) repairs of the knee microscopically;
4. Percutaneous fixation of wrist fractures (scaphoid)
to yield scarless repairs depending on the injury.
