FAQHip replacement is a highly invasive surgery: Reaching the hip requires cutting or moving the skin, fat layer, muscles and tendons as well as the actual hip bones.  It’s inevitable that this will involve significant healing time.  Still, doctors strive to minimize the negative impact and ensure that patients will be able to get back to normal as soon as possible.  Minimally invasive hip replacement is one way to achieve this.                                                           
Minimal means as little as possible. In a conventional hip replacement, doctors create an 8- to 10-inch incision that lets them see the entire hip joint area.  This can be beneficial because a major goal of the surgery is getting the new joint perfectly aligned.  In minimally invasive hip replacements, doctors make a single 3- to 6-inch incision, or two 2-inch incisions, one near the buttock and one at the top of the leg,.  They insert the components through these smaller incisions using special surgical tools designed for working in tight spaces.                           
This allows for smaller, less unsightly wounds that heal more quickly and create less risk of infection. So why aren’t all hip replacements minimally invasive?  There are downsides to this form of the procedure. Because doctors have a less clear view of the hip, there is greater risk that they could install the new hip joint improperly, necessitating a revision operation. Another risk of the surgery is that of bone breakage.  If a doctor accidentally fractures a bone while cutting into it, they will need to repair it with screws or pins.  This is more likely if they have a poorer view of the bone. This form of surgery also takes longer because the surgeon is working with a more limited access point.                                                                                                  
The technique of minimally invasive surgery is more difficult to learn than conventional hip surgery, and a doctor may need to perform 50 or 100 of them before they have expert-level skills at it.  If you are contemplating getting this form of the surgery, you should learn as much as you can about your doctor and ask questions about their patients’ complication rate, or seek out an expert in minimally invasive hip replacement.  There are some other issues to be aware of. Hip replacement is a technique, not a model of hip replacement; it can be used with any artificial hip, and a doctor can decide to increase the incision size during the operation if they think it is necessary.  It is considered appropriate only for a first hip replacement, not for the more challenging revision surgery. It also may not work if the patient is heavier and has more fat tissue surrounding the joint.  Overall, this surgery is much the same as conventional and results in the same final outcome of pain-free movement, but the patient trades off a slightly shorter recovery time for a slightly increased risk of complications, depending on the surgeon’s experience level.
