Minimally Invasive Knee Surgery
With minimally invasive total knee replacement, a smaller, 4 to 6 inch incision is made rather than the one large incision used in traditional knee replacement, which usually averages 8 to 10 inches in length. Because there is less damage to the tissue around the knee, patients usually experience a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and a better looking scar.
Our expert knee surgeons at California Pacific Medical Center will work with you to determine the most appropriate knee surgery that fits your needs - a total knee replacement, a partial knee replacement or minimally invasive knee surgery as a method for knee surgery and/or knee replacement. Ask your surgeon whether minimally invasive knee surgery is right for you.
Patients come to our center for minimally invasive knee surgery from San Francisco, Marin, San Mateo, throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and even across the United States.
