EndoTech® is a revolutionary minimally-invasive instrumentation system developed right here in Arizona. This new patent-pending system provides the most advanced visualization of any endoscopic hand surgery technique. Its leading-edge technology allows the surgeon to see all of the internal anatomy with extreme clarity, so that procedures can be performed in the safest and most effective manner possible. It also enables you to recover in only one week.
Scottsdale surgeon Dr. Michael Fitzmaurice developed the EndoTech® system to offer his patients an even better alternative to traditional surgery. Available exclusively at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute, this patent-pending technology has already helped many people -right here in Arizona.
For many patients at the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in Scottsdale, Arizona who have conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, De Quervain’s tendinitis, trigger finger or trigger thumb, surgery can often be performed the very same day as their consultation. This not only provides a very unique opportunity to engage in an efficient, consistent, and directed course of treatment -it also saves patients a tremendous amount of time. Whether you’re traveling across town, or across the Country, eliminating extra visits can be a welcome relief for most people.

With most MRI diagnostic scans ranging from 20 – 30 minutes in duration, performing the test onsite saves valuable time for both the patient and the medical team, but also allows Dr. Fitzmaurice to access the results without delay, which facilitates beginning of the treatment phase without losing valuable time to lab delays and processing times.
Providing advanced diagnostic testing onsite offers a unique advantage to the Fitzmaurice Hand Institute in a comfortable, safe, and familiar setting for every patient. When used in conjunction with Dr. Fitzmaurice’s detailed exam, an MRI can help to rule out a particular condition, or confirm the source of a set of symptoms, which can help to design the most effective treatment plan, and save time and money in the long term.
Dr. Fitzmaurice recently became fellowship-trained in regenerative medicine and stem cells. He is one of the few doctors in the country who trained in this field. Over the last few years, there have been great strides in research regarding regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy which harness the body’s own healing capacity to recover from injuries. Stem cells are the most basic cells living in the human body. Their most amazing trait is that they can become many types of cells, from skin cells to muscle, from bone to cartilage. Additional therapies utilize the healing properties of a patient’s own platelet cells.
