The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery

13/08/2014

Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery is an option for people suffering from worn or damaged hip joints, often caused by osteoarthritis - the most common disease of the joints.


This minimally invasive technique allows a surgeon to perform hip surgery with specially designed equipment making just one or two small incisions, as opposed to the traditional method which involves making an incision of around 10-12 inches.




Most of our Orthopaedic Surgeons at France Surgery specialise in this procedure which is not just about the size of the incision, but in fact about a full non-invasive technique without any muscular section, as there are significant benefits to the patient.


The Benefits of Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery


  1. Smaller Incision (just 3 to 4 inches)

  2. Reduced Pain

  3. Less muscle trauma to the deep muscle tissues and underlying structure of the hip

  4. Minimal scarring

  5. Reduced risk of dislocation

  6. Faster recovery and more rapid return to normal life

This operation is one of the most reliable and common in orthopaedic surgery with a positive consistent outcome of reducing arthritic pain for patients, and in some cases, eliminating the pain completely.
