Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement

Minimally invasive surgical techniques are a recent advancement for total knee replacement technology. A minimally invasive approach is more complex than a standard knee replacement because the incisions are approximately half the size of those used in a typical open surgical approach. The smaller incisions are used with advanced imaging techniques to provide surgeons an in-depth view of the knee. A minimally invasive approach may reduce hospital stay and the need for extended inpatient rehabilitation.
