Tourniquet-less Knee Surgery

Options for Minimally Invasive Knee Surgery

Traditionally, a tourniquet is used during knee surgery to create a bloodless surgical area and reduce intraoperative bleeding, which can reduce surgical time. However, there are benefits to a tourniquet-less knee surgery, such as:

  • Reduced pain
  • Quicker recovery
  • Ability to begin physical therapy and rehabilitation quicker
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Up and walking same day as surgery
