What is the difference between MIS hip replacement and traditional surgery?

0

MIS involves use of special instruments and techniques to perform hip replacements through smaller incisions. The scars are shorter and the initial recovery may be faster. It is important to appreciate that hip replacement performed in the standard manner gives excellent long term results. Therefore any modification in surgical technique must not compromise these results for the sake of short term gain. It is for this reason that MIS THR should only be performed by surgeons with the appropriate training and experience.
