Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement is usually used for knee or hip replacement. During these procedures, surgeons use shorter incisions and less invasive techniques to replace the joints. This method allows for a shorter recovery and a more comfortable experience during your procedure.
Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement
Total knee replacement or arthroplasty is a common procedure that replaces damaged surfaces of the knee with a prosthesis. This procedure is less invasive than a traditional total knee replacement and relieves pain in the knee, which allows patients to return to their everyday lives.
During this procedure, damaged areas of the knee are removed. This often includes knee cartilage and soft tissue. At AVORS Medical Group, our main goal is to provide total healing for every patient.
Once damaged areas of the knee are removed, they are replaced with a functioning implant to increase mobility and alleviate pain. During a minimally invasive knee replacement, there is less cutting of the tissue with shorter incisions. This means less pain and a shorter recovery.

Minimally invasive knee replacement may not be right for those who have severe deformities, other underlying health conditions or for patients who have undergone multiple knee surgeries already. For questions about this procedure, call us today.
Minimally Invasive Total Hip Replacement
Our orthopedic specialists are trained in minimally invasive total hip replacements. A minimally invasive hip replacement involves shorter incisions, less downtime and reduced pain.
During this procedure, the damaged hip bone is cut and removed. Sometimes soft tissue is also removed in this process. With a minimally invasive hip replacement, two smaller incisions are made, instead of traditional, long incisions. When smaller incisions are made, fewer muscles surrounding the hip are detached. This procedure comes with a speedy recovery and a more comfortable experience overall.
During this procedure, the damaged parts of the hip are replaced with an implant to create more mobility and comfort during your day to day life.
Is Minimally Invasive Total Hip Replacement Right for Me?
During your first consultation, our specialists will evaluate multiple factors to determine whether or not minimally invasive hip replacement is a good option for you. This procedure is generally suitable for those who are younger and healthy and for those who have not undergone a previous hip surgery.
This procedure may not be suitable for those who are very muscular, elderly, experiencing other health conditions or for those who have already undergone multiple hip surgeries. To find out whether or not this procedure is fit for you, schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic specialists.
