Quad-Sparing Knee


The quadriceps-sparing, minimally invasive total knee replacement reduces post-operative discomfort by sparing the quadriceps muscle and tendon that are traditionally cut through during a normal total knee replacement surgery. During the quad-sparing procedure, Dr. Wainer makes a small incision and moves the quadricep muscle and surrounding soft tissue rather than cutting through it. Dr. Wainer is assisted by a computer the procedure can be performed without inserting a guide rod into the femur bone. The computer gives Dr. Wainer constant feedback during the procedure to provide the best possible knee alignment for the patient. Benefits of a Quadriceps-Sparing Total Knee Replacement Less trauma to muscles and tendons Smaller, less noticeable incision No guide rod is needed through the femur bone Less damage to tissue Shorter rehabilitation Less blood loss Shorter hospital stay Faster return of basic knee functions Generally good mobility within 24 hours after operation
