Minimally-invasive knee replacement is a very successful surgical treatment for knee arthritis. Over the years, minimally invasive knee replacement surgical techniques have been developed to lessen tissue trauma and improve patient outcomes.

This minimally invasive approach involves much smaller incisions than the usual 10–12 inch incisions used in the traditional knee replacement, and spares the quadriceps muscle and tendon from being cut to access the knee joint.

Minimally invasive knee joint replacement surgery usually involves minor incisions, resulting in fewer tissues cut and less potential for complications.

The potential advantages of minimally invasive surgery over traditional methods include:
  • Smaller incision
  • Less Pain
  • Reduced surgical recovery time
  • Resulting in less damage to muscle tissue
An orthopaedic surgeon will perform this procedure, aided by a team of medical professionals. The whole process typically takes two to three hours. In general, here is what you can expect:
  • The surgery is performed under sterile conditions in the operating room. If you decide to have surgery, you will be put to sleep with general anesthesia. Or you may experience local anesthesia and take a mild sedative.
  • Your surgeon will minimize these risks by carefully choosing the best approach to surgery, controlling bleeding, and monitoring your vital signs during surgery.
  • You may require antibiotics before and after surgery to prevent infection.
  • After making an incision about 8 inches long, the surgeon will cut and remove the damaged bone in your thigh bone and shin bone.
  • Next, implants are placed into the joint space. We then cement them into place to ensure that they remain stable and secure.
  • In the vast majority of cases, the surgeon will also remove a portion of the underside of the kneecap to provide access to the diseased knee joint.
  • This procedure involves the insertion of a plastic spacer into the space between metal implants, to increase mobility and improve flexibility.
Like in any surgical procedure, there are some risks as well associated with Knee replacement surgery.
  • Blood clots
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Loosening or wearing out of the prosthesis
