Minimally Invasive Knee and Shoulder Surgery

Serving Patients in Wiregrass/Wesley Chapel, Tampa, Zephyrhills, and Brandon FL

In more and more instances, surgeons are performing minimally invasive surgery on the knee and shoulder instead of traditional open surgery. These surgeries are performed in a fashion that preserves more healthy muscles, ligaments and tendons to lessen the impact of the procedure on the body. A host of knee and shoulder surgeries can now be performed using this technique, ranging from ACL reconstructions and total knee replacements to labral repairs and total shoulder replacements.

When compared to a traditional open surgery approach, the benefits of minimally invasive surgery include smaller incisions, reduced post-operative pain, less bleeding, faster recovery times and reduced risk of complications. However, the advantages can vary from procedure to procedure. Your doctor will be able to explain in detail whether your specific condition can benefit from this approach.

If you’re experiencing problems with your knee or shoulder and would like to discuss whether you could benefit from a minimally invasive procedure, schedule an appointment with Dr. Ira Guttentag at Florida Medical Orthopaedics, Sports Medicine & Spine. Dr. Guttentag is a trusted physician due to his:

  • Experience – Advanced procedures, such as minimally invasive surgery, are technically demanding and are mastered only by surgeons who perform them a high number of times. Dr. Guttentag is highly experienced at performing these surgeries and has been performing them successful for many years.
  • Specialization – Dr. Guttentag specializes in treating the knee and shoulder, so he holds deep knowledge about these joints. This specialized knowledge is extremely beneficial when you are having your knee or shoulder repaired.
  • Individualized care – Dr. Guttentag treats patients of all levels, from professional athletes to “weekend warriors”. He will evaluate your condition, discuss your goals regarding recovery, and recommend a personalized treatment plan for you.
