Knee replacement surgery is a procedure that’s designed to replace all or part of the knee joint. This is accomplished using artificial implants for the two bones in the knee and a plastic spacer. Some patients may be reluctant to consider this type of surgery. In some cases, patients may even feel that such a surgery won’t help them very much. However, there are three benefits that you can expect after minimally invasive knee replacement surgery.
- Reduced knee pain
The most common cause of issues with the knee joint is arthritis, and this condition can lead to joint damage and lots of pain. Using minimally invasive techniques, surgeons can complete a knee replacement procedure that can reduce the amount of knee pain you feel after surgery. This is one of the biggest benefits you can expect after your knee replacement surgery.
2. Faster recovery
Another benefit you can expect after minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is a faster recovery time. In traditional knee replacement procedures, 8-to-10-inch incisions were necessary, and many times knee muscles and other soft tissue were cut during the procedure.
With minimally invasive techniques, less soft tissue damage is done. Also, a smaller 4-inch incision is typically all that’s required for this type of surgery. This means your body will have less healing to do after surgery, and this can decrease your recovery time significantly.
3. Improved ability to perform daily activities
Possibly the most important benefit you can expect after minimally invasive knee replacement surgery is an improved ability to do normal daily tasks. After all, the knee is vital to performing daily tasks like walking and standing. It’s also critical to other activities such as jumping and running.
The pain of knee arthritis may have reduced your ability to do such things, but all that can change after a minimally invasive knee replacement. You may find that you’re not only able to do normal tasks with less difficulty, you may also be able to recapture your independence, too.
