Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

Total Knee Replacement TKR and Total Shoulder Replacement TSR are very successful surgical treatment for arthritis of the knee and shoulder respectively.

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
