Themain goal of Hip ReplacementSurgery is to remove the damage bones andcartilage which are main cause of pain and replace them with artificial joints.

TraditionalHip Replacement and Minimally Hip Replacement Surgery are two options availablefor the patients 

Traditional Hip Replacement Surgery

TraditionalHip Replacement Surgery involves making an incision on the side of the hip(lateral approach) or the back of the hip (posterior approach). Both techniquesinvolve detachment of muscles and tendons from the hip in order to replace thejoint. Detachment of these muscles may result in increased pain aftersurgery and often prolongs the time to fully recover by months or evenyears. Failure of these muscles to heal after surgery may increase the risk ofhip dislocation (the ball and socket separating), which is the leading cause ofhip replacement failure. Hip precautions after surgery (no bending greater than90 degrees, no crossing legs, no excessive rotation) are generally required forthis reason.

Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery

Directanterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive surgical technique. Thisapproach involves a 3 to 4 inch incisionon the front of the hip that allows the joint to be replaced by moving musclesaside along their natural tissue planes, without detaching any tendons. Thisapproach often results in quicker recovery, less pain, and more normal functionafter hip replacement. Because the tendons aren’t detached from the hip duringdirect anterior hip replacement, hip precautions are typically not necessary.This allows patients to return to normal daily activities shortly after surgerywith a reduced risk of dislocation.




Benefits of Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery:

• Patientsrecovery is very fast.
• Patient can start walkingwithin 3 to 6 hours and can start to climb stairs from the next day.
• The main advantage is unlikeearlier where patient had to stay for weeks in hospital, now patient can getdischarged within 3 to 4 days of operation treatment which is very beneficialfor the patient and their recovery.
• Earlier, using the oldermethods, operation was done by a big incision or cut which lead to heavy bloodloss but now with the minimally invasive technique, the incision or the cut isalso less and hence the blood loss is also minimal during the process of knee replacement.
• Blood loss is minimal henceblood transfusion is not required.
• Pain is less and recovery isquick hence less physiotherapy is needed.
• Patient don't need to takeheavy antibiotics
• It is minimally invasive henceis stitchless surgery.
