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
