Can anyone who would benefit from hip replacement have the MIS 2-Incision procedure?

0

A. Although most people who are eligible for traditional hip replacement surgery are candidates for the Zimmer MIS 2-Incision hip procedure, there are exceptions. You may not be a candidate if you are extremely overweight, very muscular, have recently had a blood clot or an unstable medication that places you at higher risk for complications, or if you have already had hip replacement surgery on the same hip. However, you may still be a candidate for traditional surgery or the Zimmer MIS Mini-Incision hip replacement procedure, another less-invasive technique with similar patient benefits.
