What is the difference between Zimmer MIS Quad-Sparing TKA and traditional knee replacement surgery?

0

Zimmer MIS Quad-Sparing TKA uses the same clinically proven implants as traditional surgery, but the technique to place the implants is less invasive. In traditional surgery, the surgeon makes an 8- to 12-inch incision and cuts through or manipulates the quadriceps (quad) tendon and muscles, which control the bending of the knee. With MIS Quad-Sparing TKA, the surgeon makes a 3- to 5-inch incision and uses adapted surgical techniques and special instruments to avoid cutting through those key tissues.
