(businesspress24) - DAVENPORT, IA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/25/15 -- "Traditional orthopaedic operations often require invasive techniques that demand long recovery periods and result in highly visible scars," explained Dr. Tyson Cobb of in the Quad Cities area. However, Dr. Cobb''s team says that their recent patient studies have shown that individuals typically experience reduced downtime and scarring as well as more effective results with their innovative minimally invasive surgical techniques compared to older, traditional open surgeries. The practice at the 2015 meeting for the American Association for Hand Surgery (AAHS) in Nassau, Bahamas, which was held in collaboration with the British Society for Surgery of the Hand (BSSH).

, the Director of the Hand and Upper Extremity Center at Orthopaedic Specialists, performed the surgeries mentioned in the presented research. His team detailed how employing state-of-the-art methods for treatment of chronic distal biceps tendon rupture (BTR) of the elbow and chronic exertional compartment syndrome of the forearm, could enhance patient care by providing an improved outcome in several notable ways. For instance, they indicate that these advanced techniques typically can reduce recovery time, postoperative pain, and scarring as evidenced by the case study documented by Elizabeth Kabel, DPT. Dr. Elizabeth Kabel presented a case report on a 23-year old professional motocross racer who returned to motocross one week after a surgery performed by Dr. Cobb.

In the case of chronic distal biceps repairs, Dr. Cobb explains that with his minimally invasive endoscopic approach the surgery is completed through a small cosmetically pleasing incision. Using this approach, tendon grafts are usually not necessary to treat chronic BTR thereby saving the patient the extra surgery typically used to harvest a tendon. Dr. Cobb''s minimally invasive approach also more accurately restores the normal tendon length and appearance. The normal symmetry is very important to many patients including body builders.

Due to the arthroscopic and endoscopic surgical techniques used, Dr. Cobb says he can complete the surgeries through smallerincisions that lead to smaller scars and more aesthetically appealing results. Ultimately, he explains, he and the entire team at Orthopaedic Specialists strive to provide exceptional patient care, and they are proud to introduce their latest findings revealing minimally invasive surgery''s potential for enhanced benefits.
