Faster rehabilitation and independence recovered much more easily
With minimally invasive prosthetic surgery, the operating procedure and postoperative conditions become less disabling for the patient.
Minimally invasive surgery significantly reduces blood loss.
Reduced risk of trauma:
“Respecting the muscles involved in walking and the knee favours the reduction of periarticular trauma and bruising.
The risk of nosocomial infections should be the same or less compared to with conventional surgery.”
Reduced Duration of Hospitalisation:
Prosthetic interventions by mini-incision associated with transcollation allow the patient to return home on the morning of the third day after surgery and to recover their independence more quickly, whereas conventional procedures require a longer period hospitalisation.
The risk of dislocation is reduced (0.3% in private statistics). Minimally invasive surgery conserves the periarticular structures which allow the patient to experience a risk-free return to daily activities and regain maximum stability after their operation.
Recovery – Post-operative pain:
The limited nature of local surgical trauma allows a return to normal activities significantly faster than through a conventional approach.
The Physio “the patient recovers his well-being quickly”.
The patient’s recovery is facilitated because their mobility is increased. They recover their independence more quickly: after the second day, they may walk with only one stick. Rehabilitation is no longer focused on the recovery of independence, but on functional recovery. The patient is not “obscured” by pain or local care: they may recover overall wellness much faster than through conventional techniques.
