Dr. Michael Messieh offers a minimally invasive, muscle sparing approach to knee replacement surgery. The muscles over the knee are not cut but rather lifted up out of the way. This medial side approach may result in significantly faster recovery and more strength and mobility in the new knee.
Our program is often results in the majority of patients going home in 2 days or less!
• Our patients report pain levels < 2 on a scale of 0 to 10 at the time of discharge from the hospital
• Our patients walk more than 100ft before they go home from the hospital!
• The majority of our patients are just using a cane 1 week after surgery!
Few orthopedic surgeons are trained in this procedure.
