Minimally Invasive Joint Surgery
Interview with Thomas Peatman, M.D.
Female Interviewer: The hip joint is a pretty hip bit of architecture. It lets you move in all directions while supporting your entire body. But what if your hip, knee, or shoulder need help? Alta Bates Summit orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Thomas Peatman, uses small incisions. We think that's important.
Dr. Thomas Peatman: Minimally invasive surgery is important for patients because it gets them good results with smaller incisions and faster rehab.
Interviewer: Patients come to Alta Bates Summit from all over Northern California when they need sophisticated surgeries, advanced technology and staff who are innovative, experienced and among the best in their field.
Dr. Peatman: One thing that's important is the use of computer navigation. It helps very precisely align the cuts made during surgery to make the prosthesis fit perfectly for that patient. I think that's important.
