Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Performed in Louisville, KY
A minimally invasive hip replacement may be a good option for you if you are relatively young and would like to address arthritis or other joint damage before it causes severe pain or impairs your mobility. Of course, any type of surgery is a big step, and you’ll want to be certain that you’ve made the right choice before you proceed. The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic in Louisville, Kentucky, provide world-class joint care. We can offer personalized advice and help you explore your options so you can make fully informed treatment decisions with confidence.
Consider the Potential Benefits
Both traditional and minimally invasive hip replacement involve removing damaged hip joint components and inserting a prosthesis in their place. The goal is the same: to reduce discomfort and restore fluid hip movement. However, compared to a traditional hip replacement, the muscle-sparing jiffy hip procedure and other minimally invasive hip replacement techniques performed today offer several advantages, including:
- Smaller incisions, which can result in less disruption to surrounding soft tissues, a faster recovery, and minimal scarring
- A higher level of surgical precision, which can be achieved with the use of advanced computer navigation systems and virtual simulators that provide real-time feedback to the surgeon during the operation
- More durable replacement joints, which can significantly reduce the bone loss that often causes artificial joints to fail
