OPTIMOTION KNEE REPLACEMENT LATERAL APPROACHBy Dr. Steve Nguyen
When it comes to minimally invasive total knee replacement, Dr. Steve Nguyen, a joint replacement specialist and pioneer in ground-breaking joint replacement techniques, offers the most advanced, innovative procedure available today. In the nearly 40-year history of contemporary knee replacement surgery, this exclusive and revolutionary surgical method is unlike any other in the entire U.S.
The procedure involves the use of proprietary techniques to place the same clinically proven implants used in standard surgery, but through an incision that avoids any trauma to the quadriceps muscle and spares the medial ligament as well. This unique approach dramatically reduces pain by sparing muscles and tendons that historically have been cut during standard total knee replacement surgery.
Developed for people who are on the go with busy schedules, the process involves an incision through the side of the knee that not only saves the quadriceps muscle, but gets you up and walking in less time than a traditional total knee.
Because there is less damage to the tissue around the knee, patients who undergo this procedure can expect a shorter hospital stay, a shorter recovery, and years of pain-free living.
