Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement surgery.
Dr Jayant Arora is a pioneer of Minimally invasive Knee replacement surgery. MIS Knee replacement is offered to majority of our patients. It a new method of performing Knee replacement using an incision that is half the length of the standard total knee incision.
This technique minimizes muscle cutting thereby reducing the post operative pain, allowing earlier rehabilitation and reducing the duration of hospital stay.
The knee components are same as those used during the traditional surgery but using special instrumentation only a 4 inch incision is sufficient to carry out the surgery.
MIS Knee replacement is possible in majority of patients needing knee replacement, exceptions being large legs due to obesity and bulky muscles.
Small Incision Knee surgery or MIS surgery-- done through a small cut--- leads to minimal post surgery pain, early recovery and shorter hospital stay. This technique is ideal for partial knee replacements.

These patient-specific surgical instruments are custom made for the precise alignment of patient’s knee.There are several distinct advantages of this technology.

This may lead to less blood loss and a lower risk of infection. Read more....
