Potential benefits of minimally invasive knee replacement surgery include increased knee mobility and motion sooner after the surgery, lesser blood loss during the surgery, faster and easier recovery, much smaller scar, and shorter hospital stay.

"Knee replacement surgery is one of the most delayed surgical procedures. Patients delay it until they can barely walk or bones start cracking. A common sentiment is, "I thought it was Ok, as long as I could walk" or "My friends told me yoga could help". Well, while yoga and other exercises can help prevent certain diseases, an unmonitored strain during an already severed arthritis, does more damage than good. It may severe the pain, and advance complications. This is why I always highlight the importance of timely treatment. Then, you'll able to recover quicker, adjust faster, walk painlessly and experience a very evident change in the quality of life. Also its a myth that the implants only last 5-6 years. No. A good knee replacement surgery will easily last you an average of 15-25 years."

Cartilage regeneration, also known as autologous chondrocyte implantation (ACI), is an innovative orthopedic knee surgery to replace the damaged or worn out cartilage in the knee joint. The procedure is performed by an orthopedic surgeon who takes the healthy cartilage cells from the damaged knee, cultures them in a lab for a span of 4 to 6 weeks, and then injects the new cells to the damaged joint for regeneration with the healthy nearby cartilage. This is a minimally invasive procedure and is a promising option for some patients with isolated cartilage loss. Patients with more extensive knee damage often require a knee replacement.
