Minimally Invasive Hip Joint Resurfacing Surgery at World-class Joint Replacement Hospitals in India

A Minimally Invasive Hip Resurfacing procedure can be done for a complete or partial hip surgery and it is done with an incision less than 10 cm, hence the name. Because of the smaller size of incision lesser force is exerted on the tissues and the component position is also not compromised. This surgery has lot of advantages as compared to the standard surgical procedures, following are some of them :

  • In this procedure lesser post operative pain happens.

  • Pressure on muscle fibers and tissue damage is very negligible.

  • Stay in hospital is very short.

  • Blood loss is also very nominal.

  • The incision is quite small.

  • The patient can resume work and other functional activities in short period of time.

Minimum invasive technologies have come a long way i.e. the time required for the surgery has reduced as also the operative fields have shortened. Earlier in the conventional approach an incision of 15-30 cms were done, but now with the mini incision methodology an incision of only about 7-15 cms is made.

In hip replacement surgeries, minimum invasive techniques have come a long way and the shortening the operative field (mini-incision) for hip resurfacing has been from conventional open approach (15-30 cm) to the more recent mini-incision approach (7-15 cm)


Minimally invasive hip joint resurfacing is a relatively new technique and its success depends on successful fusion of a mixture of new minimally invasive surgical techniques, high quality hip implants and new instrumentation. The main prerequisites for a successful minimally invasive resurfacing are :

  • The design of the implant which can be inserted with a much smaller incision,

  • The specialized instruments which are used for femoral neck targeting, acetabular reaming and acetabular impaction are very soft tissue friendly instruments and thus protecting and not harming many tissues in the vicinity of the surgical area.

A minimally invasive hip resurfacing technique is similar to the other resurfacing procedures and the difference lies in the insertion of the prosthesis from a small incision of 3-4 inch. This prosthesis replaces the hip joints for a natural reconstruction, and as the size of incision is pretty small the adjacent muscles and tendons are not damaged much during the surgery. The recuperation is also speedy in this

Risks and Complications

The risks involved in this procedure are as follows :

  • Damage to the soft tissues

  • Dislocation or breakage of implant or

  • Nerve or blood vessel damage

  • Incorrect implantation
