Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery in Westchester
Many patients fear the pain and recovery time associated with total knee joint replacement. Minimally Invasive Surgery for knee joint replacement is a breakthrough surgical technique that utilizes laparoscopic techniques to perform total knee joint replacement surgery. The result is a procedure that requires only a few small incisions, as well as reduced risk, less pain and a quicker recovery.
The Lawrence Hospital Joint Replacement Center, located in Westchester, New York, offers minimally invasive knee replacement surgery to improve the lives of our patients. If you could benefit from knee replacement surgery, call to request an appointment today.
Want to know more? Minimally invasive knee joint replacement surgery uses the same quality knee implants as open surgery, it simply utilizes laparoscopic surgical techniques and instruments. The entire procedure is performed through an incision as small as 3 to 4 inches, dissecting only the midvastus muscle. The different surfaces in the knee joint are carefully exposed and replaced, one at a time, through that same incision. The actual resurfacing of the knee joint, as well as the implanting of the prosthesis, are similar to the traditional technique.
Because fewer muscles and tendons are disturbed with the less invasive technique, their reconstruction is more natural, wound closure is easier, and recovery is faster. Clinical studies have shown that the midvastus surgical approach results in less pain after surgery, and quicker restoration of muscle control and strength. Compare this to traditional, open knee replacement surgery, where it may take several months to recover.
Are you a candidate? Most patients that require a total knee replacement are eligible to receive minimally Invasive knee joint replacement. Call for a consultation with one of the orthopaedic surgeons at the Lawrence Hospital Center to determine if minimally invasive knee joint replacement is the right option for you.
