Joint Replacement Surgery
Hip, knee and shoulder joints undergo an incredible amount of pressure and, over time, can become susceptible to arthritis, wear, and even injury. Thankfully, joint replacement technology has made leaps and bounds in recent years. Minimally invasive joint replacement requires less soft-tissue dissection compared to a traditional procedure. Both use the same artificial implants, although the surgeon will use specially designed instruments to prepare the socket and bones in order to properly place the implants.
There are numerous benefits associated with minimally invasive joint replacement compared to the traditional method of surgery, including:
- Smaller Incisions
- Reduced Blood Loss
- Less Muscle Damage
- Less Discomfort After the Procedure
- Shorter Hospital Stay
- Faster Rehabilitation
- Earlier Return to Work
Joint replacement surgery, whether traditional or minimally invasive, is performed to help decrease pain, increase mobility and improve quality of life. It may be recommended if other treatment methods, such as exercise, walking aids or medication are not effective.
