Minimally invasive hip replacement in France

Most of the orthopaedic surgeons you will be directed to through France Surgery specialise in minimally invasive hip surgery and are highly experienced using this technique. Many have been routinely using minimally invasive surgery to treat primary osteoarthritis and osteonecrosis since 2005.

A minimally invasive hip replacement does not just reduce the size of the incision, but also significantly decreases the chances of muscle damage. Compared to standard operations, minimally invasive hip surgery reduces the risk of complications, including a reduction in dislocations (less than 0.5%). Plus, patients benefit from a much faster recovery, compared to traditional hip surgery.

This surgery is available in France at any age and with any degree of obesity. It is also suitable for sufferers of osteoporosis. Its minimal nature means that a return to normal life can be expected within 3 to 4 weeks.
