A shorter recovery

AVALA Ortho physicians will always prioritize a conservative treatment plan before discussing surgery. In the case that surgery may be offered, we are committed to offering the LEAST invasive procedures with a limited amount of time in the hospital.

The length of your hospital stay would be determined by the kind of procedure your doctor performs. An average patient may leave the hospital one or two days following their procedure.
