Minimally Invasive Surgery
When surgery is your best option, choose a minimally invasive procedure at EvergreenHealth.
A minimally invasive procedure replaces the large incisions of the traditional "open" surgery with tiny incisions of less than an inch.
The small incision affects less tissue, which means you'll have:
- less pain
- less blood loss
- less scarring
- less risk of infection
This means you'll enjoy a quicker recovery and get back to the activities you love sooner.

The keys to successful minimally invasive surgery are the tiny instruments and the advanced training of our surgeons.
Our orthopedic surgeons have trained at some of the most prestigious fellowships in the country.
