Minimally invasive total replacement

    Aside from total hip replacement with a full cemented or non-cemented prosthesis, minimally invasive total hip replacement has become more and more prominent in recent years. With these, you generally have to differentiate between a minimally invasive implantation technique that protects joints and soft tissue or if the implantation of so-called mini-prosthesis is advised. Depending on the patient’s initial condition, the gentle, minimally invasive approach is done as a standard.
    Based on our experiences and results of international studies, we implant so-called mini-prosthesis very rarely, as it is currently not clear whether these prosthesises hold a long-term advantage over the standard treatments.
