Quad-sparing Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement
Patients who are candidates for a total knee replacement because of debilitating knee pain now have a new option available to them that allows a return to nomal activity much sooner than before. Recent changes in the surgical instruments and technique have allowed some surgeons the ability to perform a complete knee replacement through a much smaller incision without cutting or manipulating vital muscles and tendons. This new procedure is called the Quad-Sparing Total Knee Replacement.
Dr. Rick Nixon is the only surgeon in the Greater Houston area who performs the Quad-Sparing TKR technique and has performed the procedure in hundreds of patients over the past several years.
