Total hip arthroplasty (also called hip arthroplasty) is a common but major orthopedic surgery. Replacing the hip with an implant or “prosthesis” with minimally invasive hip replacement can relieve pain and increase mobility so that normal daily activities can be resumed.
Traditional hip arthroplasty uses one. 10-12 inches long An incision to access the hip joint. Orthopedists now prefer a minimally invasive approach for hip replacement where one or two small incisions of 3-4 inches are made. The goal of minimally invasive hip replacement with a shorter incision is to reduce pain and speed recovery. Unlike traditional total hip arthroplasty, minimally invasive surgery is not suitable for all patients.
Talk to the best orthopedic surgeon at Pristyn Care to determine the best surgical option for total hip arthroplasty. The· Minimally invasive hip replacement Includes minimal pain, less muscle dissection, faster recovery, and better mobility.
Why do I need total hip arthroplasty?
If there is significant hip damage, the patient may be advised to have a total hip arthroplasty. Various health conditions can damage this joint.
- Hip injury or fracture
- Hip bone tumor
- Bone infarction
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Such hip damage can be extremely painful and can even interfere with normal daily activities and activities. Minimally invasive hip arthroplasty helps relieve constant pain, improve overall mobility, and improve overall quality of life. Minimally invasive hip arthroplasty is usually recommended for patients if they still have serious problems after trying other, more non-surgical treatment options.
Talk to Pristin Care’s best orthopedic surgeon, who specializes in minimally invasive orthopedic surgery such as minimally invasive knee replacement, ACL reconstruction, and carpal tunnel open surgery. Talk to a professional orthopedist about the benefits and risks of being minimally invasive. Hip replacement surgery instead of traditional laparotomy. Minimally invasive hip replacement uses a small incision of about 4 inches, which is about half that of open hip replacement.
Comparison of minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty and conventional total hip arthroplasty
- Small incision: Whereas traditional hip arthroplasty open surgery is performed with a large 10-inch or 12-inch incision, with minimally invasive hip arthroplasty, the surgeon makes a small incision of 4 to 6 inches.
- Less amputation of muscles and tendons: Minimally invasive hip arthroplasty causes less damage to surrounding structures. In fact, there are virtually no muscle or tendon amputations.
- Reduction of blood loss: Due to the small size of the incision and less tissue amputation, there is less blood loss during minimally invasive hip replacement and there is little need for blood transfusions.
- Minimal postoperative pain: With minimal damage to adjacent healthy tissue, patients experience less pain after minimally invasive hip replacement surgery and facilitate the postoperative recovery phase.
- Shortening hospital stay: After traditional hip arthroplasty, patients usually need to spend at least 4-5 days in the hospital. Minimally invasive hip replacement is an outpatient procedure that allows patients to return home the same day after surgery.
- Minimal scars: A small incision is made during minimally invasive hip replacement, resulting in less scarring and recovery after surgery.
- Faster healing: Minimally invasive hip replacement does not cut the surrounding tendons or muscles, so the new implant has sufficient support and stability. Therefore, patients may recover faster and return to daily activities immediately after undergoing a minimally invasive hip arthroplasty.
The last word
Minimally invasive knee replacement is designed to reduce tissue trauma associated with total hip arthroplasty. This surgery is done with a small incision of 4 to 6 inches. Less trauma to surrounding tissue results in less discomfort and pain after surgery and faster recovery.
