Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement
Detailed Information

Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement What is Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement?

An incision over the front of the knee, measuring about 6-12 inches, is used for a normal knee replacement procedure. A minimally invasive knee replacement attempts a smaller incision to perform the same procedure. A knee replacement is carried out to replace a metal and plastic implant of the cartilage worn out from the knee. Minimally invasive knee replacements apply the same implants as conventional knee replacements but these implants are placed by a smaller cut.

  • Severe knee pain
  • Swelling
  • Long-lasting knee inflammation
  • Some redness around the knee
  • Warmth around incision or knee

Treatment for Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement

The surgical procedure is similar in minimum invasive knee replacement, but the tissue around the knee is less cut. The use of artificial implants is the same as for traditional replacement of the knee. Specially designed surgical instruments are however used in the preparation and correct placement of the femur and tibia. Minimally invasive replacement of your knee is carried out by a shorter incision. A smaller incision provides less disturbance of the tissue. The procedure used to open the knee is less invasive in relation to a smaller incision. Quadriceps sparing are typically done in minimally invasive knee replacement procedures, which prevent trauma in the tendon of quadriceps and muscles in the front of the thigh. Other methods called midvastus and subvastus, which are minimally invasive, make tiny incisions in the muscle but also less invasive than traditional knee replacement. Due to a lower disruption to the muscle, the techniques used to expose the joints may lead to less pain and a lower recovery time.
