Innovative Treatment Options

Crystal Clinic is proud to be on the cutting-edge of the latest surgical and nonsurgical approaches. Whether our surgeons have developed a new procedure themselves or embraced the newest advancements in technology and treatments, you can always expect to receive state-of-the-art care for your condition.

Minimally Invasive Surgery

Many surgical procedures, including those for hip, knee, and spine conditions, are performed using minimally invasive techniques. Patients tend to experience a more rapid recovery and less postoperative pain with minimally invasive surgery. Other advantages of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • A few smaller cuts instead of a single, large incision

  • Less damage to nerves, muscles, and tissues

  • Reduced bleeding and scarring

  • Shorter hospitalization time

Robotic Knee Replacement

Crystal Clinic Orthopaedic Center is one of the first hospitals in Northeast Ohio to offer robotic-arm assisted partial and total knee replacements. This highly advanced robotic technology adds to our ability to successfully replace knee joints and enables our surgeons to have an additional tool for the difficult knee joint problems requiring more predictable accuracy. 

The robotic knee replacement is a treatment option similar to existing knee replacement techniques already employed by Crystal Clinic joint replacement surgeons. The robotic system is designed to assist surgeons faced with replacing more severely damaged knee joints caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis.

Crystal Clear Pathway

Crystal Clear Pathway is Crystal Clinic’s specialized program for Medicare patients undergoing joint replacement surgery. Its goal is to provide you with better care by increasing communication and collaboration between every provider involved with your care – before, during, and after your surgery. As part of this program, you will receive a customized care plan that will assist you, your family members and your care providers to more easily navigate the complexities of your hospitalization, recovery and rehabilitation. Developed in accordance with government guidelines, this program has led to better overall patient outcomes.
