If you suffer from hip pain or are considering hip replacement surgery, you may be a candidate for a new minimally invasive technique that makes hip surgery, recovery and rehabilitation faster and easier.
  • Standard hip replacement surgery usually involves one 10 to 12 inch incision. Mini-incision surgery typically involves two, 2 to 3 inch incisions.
  • Special instruments allow the surgeon to move aside muscles, ligaments, and tendons, rather than cut through them, greatly reducing rehab time and discomfort.
  • The same high quality, clinically proven hip implants that are used in standard hip replacements are used in minimally invasive surgery.
  • For patients, the benefits are numerous:
    • Less trauma and pain 
    • Faster rehabilitation
    • Smaller scars
    • Shorter hospital stay
    • Less blood loss

Broward Health Coral Springs is one of the area's first hospitals to offer this new procedure.
