The mini-posterior approach is similar to the traditional posterior approach except that it requires a smaller incision and exposes less soft tissue. The mini-posterior approach involves separating the muscle fibers of the large buttock muscle located at the side and the back of the hip. The muscle fibers are separated, so the nerve path is not disturbed, and the muscle is not injured. With a minimally invasive surgical technique for hip replacement, combined with advanced pain management techniques, we have seen a significantly shorter hospital length of stay, less blood loss and better...
