Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists
"There is no need to go further than the Lakes Region for your orthopaedic care!" » more
Advanced Orthopaedic Specialists (AOS) is pleased to announce they are now using the VisionScope Imaging (VSI) System to assess a variety of joint pathologies. For the first time, Dr. Alexander Hennig and the team at AOS can gain immediate insight to a joint’s spaces and surfaces, informing of a definitive diagnosis in just a matter of minutes – without leaving the office exam room.
Of making the decision to offer VSI as an option to his patients, Dr. Hennig said, “VSI gives me real-time information that I can use to communicate a clear diagnosis and treatment plan recommendation, all while the patient is present and participating in the discussion. Never before has there been an in-office option that offers me a way to obtain direct visibility while engaging my patient in a personalized, collaborative conversation. VSI helps me achieve my clinical goals and meet my patient’s needs, all in one visit.”
The VisionScope Imaging System is a non-surgical diagnostic tool that uses a tiny needle scope to view the inside of both large and small joints. The VSI exam takes less than 10 minutes and allows patients to resume normal activities, with physician direction, immediately following their appointment. No general anesthesia, no stitches, no recovery time. And the path to diagnosis can potentially be collapsed from weeks – even months – to one VSI appointment.
“My patients love VSI. It’s easy, it’s fast, it doesn’t disrupt their daily routines and activities and they get what they came in for – an answer,” shared Dr. Hennig.
