Knee replacement surgery is to relieve pain and disability of the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint. It is most commonly performed for osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis. In minimally invasive knee replacement surgery involves cutting of soft tissue and bone in order to implant prosthetic knee joint components. In minimally invasive knee replacement surgery we use a smaller skin incision, as the word itself predicts, so there is minimal cutting of muscles, tendons, and ligaments to insert any supportive device. As this surgery requires less invasion of the knee area, thus it will allow a faster post-surgical recovery than any other knee replacement surgeries. The knee joint is very intricate and complex part of the human anatomy so it is very tough to make a small and precise cut that too in the minimum area of the surface.
The operation will involve substantial postoperative pain and vigorous physical rehabilitation.
Many pre-operative preparations are required for the surgery. About a month before the surgery the patient may be prescribed iron supplement in the diet to boost the hemoglobin in the blood system . X-rays of the affected knee are needed to measure the size of components which will be needed.
Care must be taken post-surgery that no kind of infection may prevail, as it will result in future complications.
A 3 to 6 inches cut will be made with minimally invasive surgery. During a less invasive surgery, an incision is made to some deeper soft tissues, rest of the nearby muscles and tendons are lifted or pushed out of the way rather than a cut. Kneecap is simply pushed aside to make the deeper tissues available for an incision. Tibia is not dislocated like un any traditional surgery. Type of minimally invasive knee replacement surgery depends on the location of the incision, the shape of the incision and the way other soft tissues are cleared out of the way to proceed the surgery and then placed correctly. It depends on the experience of the surgeon.
