The Pros and Cons of Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery : 

The Pros and Cons of Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery From lengthy time recovery of hip replacement surgery, now comes the new technique that have been developed by most surgeon. Through latest developments and innovation of technology, what was once performed through manual incision and replacement is now done through the visualization of x-ray guidance. There is less stitch required, from 12 to 18 inches in length, it now became 5 to 8 inches. Imagine the difference of before and after development. Not only that, but through this operation, the patient will be satisfied because it caters less pain, less case of hemorrhage and cuts the time of rehabilitation shortly. That is the promise of minimally invasive hip resurfacing. It may be through total or partial hip surgery and thus, because of its evident advantages, there will not be any hefty forces imparted that will compromise any component of the anatomy. The process is through two small incisions and with minimal muscle dissection wherein the surgeon does not look directly into the arthritic hip, rather, through the x-ray guidance. Some say that this is the disadvantage of this procedure because the precision is not as accurate as the manual visualization of arthritic hip. Any mishaps will be oversee unlike the latter. Poor positioning of hip dislocations and pain in the short run or failure in the longer term may result if not done successfully. Hopefully if those cases would be avoided then the patient can walk on crutches in the same day that he/she had his/her operation for 8 days onward. Moreover, there are some claims that the precision of the said operation is over hyped and under proven. This was supported by the studies conducted by a small group of medical innovators who rated the difference of the traditional operation from minimally hip invasive hip surgery. Their observation to the study was that, susceptibility of complication is high and regarding post operation due to the said poor position which was intricate and needed detailed concern during the operation. Thus, not everybody who are willing to take the risk of such operation is qualified to undergo the surgery because there are still many things to consider about it. That is why only few surgeons are performing this procedure for more than two years already. This technique is difficult to learn and much more in performing. Plus there are a limited number of implant options with the two-incision hip replacement, and some surgeons feel they are not be able to use the optimal artificial hip implant.

The pros and cons of this surgery is already supplied. It is upon the discretion of the patient who is going to undergo hip replace to subject his self in this kind of operation. The most thing to always consider is the long term effect of the operation and not just only because pain and bleeding is lesser. Supposedly, the goal of joint replacement is to achieve a long-lasting and well functioning implant that is free of complication. So it is better for surgeons to stick with that and for patients to know that. :
