Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

Total Hip Replacement (THR) and Total Knee Replacement (TKR) are very successful surgical treatment options for arthritis of the hip and knee respectively.

Over the last several years hip and knee replacement surgery has evolved to a Minimally Invasive technique.

Advantages of Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement are

  • Less tissue trauma – muscles and tendons are avoided or separated, not cut
  • Faster and less painful rehabilitation
  • Smaller incisions and less scarring – two incisions of 1½ to 2 inches each, rather than one 10- to 12-inch incision
  • Reduced blood loss and less need for pre-surgery blood donation
  • Faster return to work and daily activities
