Leading-edge Technology and Programs

Minimally Invasive Procedures

BIDMC offers advanced, minimally invasive procedures for knee, hip and shoulder injuries.

Benefits of Smaller Incisions

Smaller incisions mean:

  • Less disruption to muscle and tendons
  • Reduced post-operative pain
  • Quicker recovery for patients

Arthroscopic Surgery Advances

Arthroscopic procedures are revolutionizing hip, knee, wrist, shoulder, elbow, spine and ankle reconstruction. Ligament damage, torn cartilage and  meniscal injuries can now be repaired less invasively, restoring a patient's activity level and mobility faster.

Primary Care Sports Medicine Program

Unique to most orthopaedics surgery programs, the primary care  sports medicine service offers evaluation and non-invasive treatment and rehabilitation therapies for non-surgical acute and overuse  injuries as well as chronic pain.

Cartilage Injections

Pioneering techniques to resurface joints and treat cartilage injuries are available, including viscosupplementation, a novel form of injection therapy that promotes healing in joints affected with arthritis.

Advanced Limb-Sparing Procedures

Revolutionary advances in limb prostheses and limb-sparing surgery offer BIDMC patients with bone and soft tissue sarcomas and neoplasms an opportunity to preserve their mobility and function and sustain a quality of life that was until now not possible.
