The Total Hip Replacement Procedure
At Minimally Invasive Joint Replacement Institute, we use a spinal anesthesia and peri-capsular blocks for the duration of the procedure without the need of General Anesthesia. Each patient obtains a detailed pre-operative plan as well as robotic assistance which minimizes operative time and increases precision of the procedure without cutting of native ligaments, muscles or tendons. Typically, patients get up and walk within 30 minutes after their procedure with the help of nurses and physical therapy in the recovery unit. Patient’s usually will then leave the facility within 90 minutes to begin their recovery period from home. We’ll be with you every step of the way!
