Extract

Patient demand, potential health-care savings, and the development of new instrumentation and techniques have led to the rapid advancement of less invasive surgical approaches. Minimally invasive surgery is an evolutionary process that has transformed the surgical practices of surgeons not only in the area of orthopaedics but also in other medical fields. Currently, initiatives promoting minimally invasive surgery are under way for total hip arthroplasty as well as spine surgery, in an attempt to avoid highly invasive open procedures that result in slower rates of recovery for the patient.
