What is minimally invasive knee replacement surgery?
As the name suggests, minimally invasive knee-replacement surgery is less intrusive form of knee replacement surgery compared to total knee replacement (TKR) surgery. Reasons why many people opt for minimally invasive knee-replacement surgery include:
- Shorter recovery time
- Shorter hospital stay after surgery
- Less painful recovery
- Less tissue trauma inside the knee
- Less scar tissue on the knee due to smaller incisions
There are many pros and cons to minimally invasive knee-replacement surgery. In certain cases, minimally invasive knee-replacement surgery may not be right for you, based on your unique medical issues. That’s why it’s critical that you discuss your options carefully with one of our knee surgeons.
