Knee and Hip Replacements – that avoids cutting of your muscle
Stop living in pain, today is the day you can take a step towards getting your life back! A total joint replacement surgery for the knee or hip that is done with a small incision and without cutting any muscle is known as a minimally invasive knee surgery or a minimally invasive hip surgery.
This type of surgery is more challenging than a traditional knee surgery and requires a specially trained orthopedic surgeon.

A minimally invasive joint replacement surgery dramatically reduces healing time compared to when muscle is cut. Additionally physical therapy and return to work time is greatly decreased.
The surgery is done by moving the muscles aside to reveal the area that is being operated on, and moved back once surgery is complete.
Dr. David Morawski is a pioneer in this field and was the first doctor in IL to gain insurance coverage for same-day total joint surgeries at an ASC for his patients. This revolutionized the choices patient were offered, and could save money, and get sent home faster than ever before.
