Total hip arthroplasty or total hip replacement is a common procedure where the hip joint is replaced with an implant or prosthesis. This enables to improve mobility and restore day to day activities of an individual.
In a traditional hip replacement procedure one long incision is made to access and view the hip joint. In a minimally invasive procedure a short incision is made and muscle conservation approach is done.
The procedure is ideally suitable for individuals who are not obese and have a BMI less than 30 and for patients using uncemented femoral prosthesis.

Skin incision is made of length less than 10 cms and a muscle conserving approach is made to reach the deeper hip joint.
This approach allows early recovery and mobilisation due to less pain and better muscle function. Gives cosmetically a better scar as well
