Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) has revolutionized knee replacement surgery. With specialized techniques and instrumentation, major surgery can be performed without a large incision.

MIS knee joint replacement requires an incision of 3-5 inches, as opposed to the standard 8-12 inches. This less invasive approach results in less tissue trauma, less blood loss, less post-operative pain and a faster recovery.

Its benefits allow a decreased recovery time and increased motion due to less scar tissue formation. After about 6-8 weeks, most people who have undergone this surgery can enjoy most activities (once muscle strength is restored with physical therapy).
