Minimally Invasive Surgical Malunion treatment
Treatments Related to Minimally Invasive Surgical Malunion treatment
Related treatments of minimally invasive malunion are traditional surgery with cutting into the tissue and muscles and the use of plates, pins and rods to reinforce the bones involved in the malunion. This surgical procedure is considered invasive and has increased risk of side effects and complications.
Other treatment options involve using laparoscopic surgery and a specialized device invented by the head of Florida Hospital Orthopaedic Institute and known as the “fibula intramedullary nail” (cable mechanism). Whereas traditional surgery is more invasive, the cable mechanism is most recognized as noninvasive along with minimally invasive surgical malunion treatment.
Specialists at Florida Hospital Orthopaedic Institute Fracture Care Center are available to screen patients, can make a malunion diagnosis, and are specialized in performing minimally invasive surgical malunion treatment and using the “fibula intramedullary nail” cable mechanism.
