Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

If you have arthritis of the hip or knee, your doctor may recommend total hip replacement or total knee replacement. These joint replacement procedures are typically very successful in relieving arthritis symptoms.

In some cases, you may qualify for a minimally invasive hip or knee replacement surgery. These procedures use small incisions—usually less than 2 inches—instead of larger ones. As a result, minimally invasive surgery provides benefits, including:

  • Reduced scarring
  • Less trauma to your tissue
  • Less pain
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Quicker rehabilitation
  • Shorter stay in the hospital
  • Faster return to daily life
