Total Knee Replacement

Knee Replacement Surgery

If you need knee replacement surgery, The Medical Center of Aurora's specially trained surgeons are using some of the most advanced minimally invasive techniques.

The Minimally Invasive Solutions (MIS) Quad-Sparing Total Knee Replacement offers an alternative to traditional surgery for patients who require a total joint replacement. By using special techniques and surgical tools, surgeons are able to avoid cutting through the quadriceps muscles during surgery - this is the only procedure of its kind that spares the quad during surgery. Additional benefits of this procedure include:

  • Smaller incision (3 to 5 inches vs. 8 to 12 inches)
  • Less tissue trauma
  • Shortened rehabilitation period
  • Less blood loss during surgery
  • Less pain during recovery
  • Shortened hospital stay
