Hip replacement with use of small incisions has been practiced selectively by a few practitioners for many years, but only in the last several years has so-called minimally invasive hip replacement been widely introduced to the majority of orthopaedic surgeons.Minimally invasive hip replacement, in fact, is not a single type of surgery but rather is a family of operations designed to allow total hip replacement to be done through smaller incisions, potentially with less soft-tissue disruption. The three main methods involve a combination of a small incision and a posterior approach to the hip, a combination of a small incision and an anterior approach to the hip, or two small incisions performed with use of the Smith-Peterson interval for acetabular placement and the approach usually used for femoral intramedullary nailing for femoral component insertion.
