Hip Replacement Minimally Invasive Surgery at Low Cost in Indias World Class Hospitals

 


Visitors: 279

Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is a new technique of hip replacement introduced in 2001. Instead of making one long incision, the surgeon uses two 2-inch (5 cm) incisions or one 3.5-1/2-inch (9 cm) incision.

Using newly designed smaller implements; the surgeon removes the damaged bone and inserts the parts of the new prosthesis. MIS hip replacement takes only an hour and a half; the incision is usually placed over the outside of the hip. The muscles and tendons are split or detached, but to a lesser extent than in the traditional hip replacement operation. They are routinely repaired after the surgeon places the implants. This helps healing. It helps prevent dislocation of the hip.

Two-incision hip replacement involves making a 2-inch to 3-inch incision over the groin for placement of the socket and a 1-inch to 2-inch incision over the buttock for placement of the stem. To perform the two-incision procedure, the surgeon needs guidance from X-rays. It may take up to two or three times as long to perform this surgery, as it takes to perform traditional hip replacement surgery.

Patients usually have less pain, less muscle damage compared with traditional hip replacement surgery, and rehabilitation is faster. With less-invasive procedures, the hospital stay may be as short as 1 or 2 days. Some patients can go home the day of surgery.

Minimally invasive surgery is still associated with complications, such as the following:

  • Improper placement of the components
  • Nerve injury
  • Fractures during the procedure
  • Blood loss
  • Blood clots after surgery
  • Infection after surgery
