Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

Total Knee Replacement TKR are very successful surgical treatment for arthritis of the knee.

Over the last several years 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
  • Shorter hospital stay – 1-2 days (vs. 3-5 days); some patients go home in less
    than 24 hours
  • Reduced blood loss and less need for pre-surgery blood donation
  • Faster return to work and daily activities
