What is the difference between Zimmer MIS 2-Incision hip replacement and traditional surgery?

0

The Zimmer MIS 2-Incision procedure is one of the least invasive surgical options available for hip replacement today. When performing the procedure, surgeons make two incisions as small as 1½ to 2 inches each, and generally separate the muscles and tendons to access the hip joint. Traditional surgery typically involves a 10- to 12-inch incision and the cutting of those key tissues.
