The benefits of a minimally invasive approach are:
A less traumatic experience
Low blood loss and transfusion avoidance
No major muscle cutting
Most patients walk well at 6 weeks without a stick or a limp.
Simply, it is a full hip replacement proceedure, but minimising the surgical trauma and risks to carry it out.
Patients who have had one traditional on one side and one via the minimally invasive approach say there is 'no comparison'.
Home the same day (true case surgery) is possible. In general suited for someone of slim build, under 70 years and with a supportive person at home, and a desire to go home the same day.
