Surgery is a big decision, no matter how major or minor. Surgical technology has evolved dramatically over the past 20-30 years. This not only includes surgical techniques, but also surgical equipment. As a result of the advances in surgical technology, surgical procedures are performed much more efficiently. Also, in many instances, far less tissue dissection is required. This reduced tissue dissection is the foundation of minimally invasive surgery. With reduced tissue dissection, there will usually be a faster recovery. Other factors, such as the magnitude of surgery and patient age and health status, will play a role. Dr. Folgueras performs minimally invasive hip and knee replacement surgery as well as minimally invasive sports and fracture surgeries.
