The article focuses on minimally invasive total knee replacement. The advantages of the procedure include smaller and less noticeable scar, minimal interruption and dissection of neurovascular tissue, shorter hospital stay and greater flexion earlier than standard incision. Patients are selected based on medical health and knee deformity.
