Minimally Invasive Surgery
When total joint replacement surgery is the best option to manage your hip or knee pain, get back to doing the things you love faster with a minimally invasive procedure at EvergreenHealth.
Our fellowship-trained total joint replacement specialists are among the early pioneers of minimally invasive techniques and are trained specifically for your surgery.
We were one of the first hospitals to perform the innovative minimally invasive computer-navigated total knee replacement surgery with a same-day discharge, which dramatically reduces your time in the hospital as well as the pain and recovery from surgery.
A minimally invasive total joint replacement substitutes the large 10-inch incision and the traditional "open exposure" surgery with a 4- to 5-inch incision.
The small incision means you'll have:
- A quicker recovery
- A quicker return of function
- A quicker return to recreational activities
- Less pain
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Less risk of infection
