Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement

November 22, 2013

University of Washington Dr. Seth Leopold discusses less-invasive knee and hip replacement surgery. A patient who had minimally-invasive knee replacement joins Dr. Leopold to share his experiences. Minimally-invasive partial knee replacement surgery results in faster recovery and less post-operative pain than traditional knee replacement. Newer hip replacement approaches are offered as minimally invasive, but some of those claims are more marketing than science.
