Minimally-Invasive Knee Replacement
Minimally invasive knee replacements are performed to alleviate chronic knee pain due to arthritis. The surgery requires the cutting of soft tissue and bone to implant prosthetic knee joint components. Minimally invasive knee replacement uses a smaller skin incision and tends to require less cutting of other soft tissue, such as muscles, tendons and ligaments. This allows for an easier recovery and provide equal or better long-term results.
Minimally invasive total knee replacement is not suitable for all patients. Your provider will conduct a comprehensive evaluation and consider several factors before determining if the procedure is an option for you.
Candidates for this procedure are generally younger, healthier, and more motivated to complete and participate in rehabilitation process.
