Fox Valley Minimally Invasive Knee & Hip Replacement

Procedures That Avoid Cutting Off Muscle

Stop living in pain – today is the day you can take a step towards getting your life back! A total joint replacement surgery for the knee or hip that is done with a small incision and without cutting any muscle is known as minimally invasive knee surgery or a minimally invasive hip surgery.

This type of surgery is more challenging than a traditional joint surgery and requires a specially trained orthopedic surgeon.

Benefits of minimally invasive surgery include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Smaller scar
  • Lower risk of blood loss during surgery

A minimally invasive joint replacement surgery dramatically reduces healing time compared to when muscle is cut. Additionally, physical therapy and return to work time is greatly decreased.

Dr. David Morawski is a pioneer in this field and was the first doctor in Illinois to gain insurance coverage for same-day total joint surgeries at an ASC for his patients. This revolutionized the choices patient were offered and could save money, and get sent home faster than ever before.
