Endoscopic Gluteus Medius and Minimus Repair

At the heart of my commitment to helping you live a pain-free life, I specialize in various orthopedic procedures, including endoscopic gluteus medius and minimus repair. With my extensive experience and dedication to orthopedic excellence,  I am  here to guide you through this journey, ensuring you regain the range of motion and function you depend on every day.

Understanding the Procedure:

The gluteus medius and minimus are crucial muscles located in your buttocks, playing a vital role in stabilizing your hip and supporting the movement of your legs. Injuries or tears in these muscles can lead to discomfort and hinder your mobility. Endoscopic gluteus medius and minimus repair is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at mending these tears, providing relief and restoring function.

What to Expect After Surgery:

During post-surgery, you may experience some discomfort and swelling, which is a normal part of the healing process. As an Orthopedic surgeon, I provide comprehensive care and clear instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. You will be guided on how to manage pain, and physical therapy will be a crucial component of your rehabilitation, helping to strengthen the hip and improve flexibility.

Recovery Time for Endoscopic Gluteus Medius Repair:

The recovery time can vary based on the extent of the repair and your individual healing process. Generally, patients can expect to spend a few weeks on crutches. Full recovery and return to normal activities typically take around three to six months. Throughout this period, I will be closely monitoring your progress, ensuring you are on the right track to regaining your strength and mobility.

Success Rate of Gluteus Medius Repair:

Endoscopic gluteus medius repair has shown to be highly successful, boasting a success rate of around 90%. This impressive outcome is a testament to my expertise and the advanced, minimally invasive techniques employed in the procedure. Patients consistently experience significant pain relief and improved function, ensuring they can return to their daily activities with confidence and ease.

The endoscopic gluteus medius and minimus repair is a comprehensive process designed to restore function and alleviate pain in crucial hip-stabilizing muscles. 

This minimally invasive procedure stands as a testament to modern orthopedic solutions, offering patients a path to recovery that is both efficient and effective. With a significant success rate and a tailored approach to post-surgery care, patients are well-equipped to regain their strength and mobility, returning to their daily activities with renewed vigor. 

Ultimately, this procedure represents a pivotal step in the journey towards a pain-free and active life, empowering patients to reclaim their mobility and live life to the fullest.
