The MIDASVu system gives patients and doctors more options before electing for more invasive surgery. In the past, to get accurate visualization of internal aspects of a joint, it required a patient to be placed under general anesthesia (put to sleep) and this lead to longer recovery times, 4 weeks or more.
The MIDASVu System allows doctors to see injuries inside a knee, hip, or shoulder in a way that normally would not be possible without surgery. Diagnosis and targeted drug delivery with the MIDASVu System allows many patients to delay their need for surgery or in some cases avoid surgery altogether. With this system, a doctor is able to definitively assess a patient’s internal injury, as well as visualize precise therapy delivery to the site where it will benefit the patient the most.
"It gives me more confidence. Sometimes when you go and get treatment you feel they're not getting the right area but this minimizes the margin for error"
Your doctor will clean and prep the procedure area
A local anesthetic is applied to numb the entry site
Your doctor will insert the IntraVu Scope into the injured joint and examine the area
You and your doctor will be able to view the injured area in real-time allowing for a quick and accurate diagnosis
Once the procedure is done, the IntraVu Scope is removed and a small dressing will be placed over the entry sites used to evaluate the joint
