Total Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone are removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components. The main indication for total hip replacement isarthritis.
Short-Stay and Fast-Track Hip Replacement
Short-stay and fast-track hip replacement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which worn-out or damaged surfaces of the hip joint are removed and replaced with prostheses. This method of treatment is known as a synchronized perioperative approach directed at decreasing surgical stress and promoting quicker postoperative recovery. The main goal of this treatment method is to reduce the necessity of hospitalization to no more than 3 days while maintaining very high patient satisfaction and few complications.
Posterior Hip Replacement
Posterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the hip joint are removed and replaced with artificial joint components made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. It is also referred to as muscle sparing surgery because key muscles and tendons are left intact while accessing the hip joint, enabling a quicker return to normal activity.
Outpatient Anterior Approach Hip Replacement
Outpatient anterior approach hip replacement refers to surgery accessed from in front of the hip in an outpatient setting. It is a minimally invasive procedure that has been developed to cause less muscle damage, faster recovery, and less disruption in a patient’s life.
Outpatient Hip Replacement
>Hip replacement surgery is one of the most common orthopedic surgeries performed. It involves the replacement of the damaged hip bone (ball shaped upper end of the femur) with a ceramic ball attached to a metal stem that is fixed into the femur and placing a new cup with a special liner in the pelvis. Traditionally, the surgery was performed with a large, open incision and required the patient to stay in the hospital for several days. With advanced techniques, it is now possible to perform these surgeries on an outpatient basis where the patient is up and walking a few hours after surgery and goes home on the same day.
Hip Fracture Surgery
Hip fractures involve a break that occurs near the hip in the upper part of the femur or thigh bone. The thigh bone has two bony processes on the upper part - the greater and lesser trochanters. The lesser trochanter projects from the base of the femoral neck on the back of the thigh bone. Hip fractures can occur either due to a break in the femoral neck, in the area between the greater and lesser trochanter or below the lesser trochanter.
Minimally Invasive Total Hip Replacement
Minimally invasive total hip replacement is a surgical procedure performed through one or two small incisions rather than the single long incision of 10–12-inches as in the traditional approach.
Anterior Hip Replacement
Direct anterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles or tendons as against traditional hip replacement that involves cutting major muscles to access the hip joint.
Revision Hip Replacement
Revision hip replacement is a complex surgical procedure in which all or part of a previously implanted hip joint is replaced with a new artificial hip joint. Total hip replacement surgery is an option to relieve severe arthritis pain that limits your daily activities.
Primary Hip Replacement
Primary hip replacement or hip arthroplasty is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with artificial components called prostheses or implants that are made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. The main objective of the procedure is to relieve hip pain and restore normal range of motion and function to the hip joint when conservative treatment, such as medications, injections, and physical therapy have failed to provide desired results.
Complex Primary Hip Replacement
Complex primary total hip replacement is defined as a primary total hip replacement surgery performed on patients with comorbidities and compromised soft-tissue or bony conditions, including but not limited to skeletal dysplasia, dysplastic hip, prior hip fracture, ankylosed hip, obesity, acetabular protrusion, certain neuromuscular conditions, and previous bony procedures concerning the hip.
Computer-Navigated Total Hip Replacement
For a successful total hip replacement, accurate positioning of the implants is crucial to accomplish a good clinical outcome. Computer-navigated total hip replacement is an advanced technology developed to provide more accurate positioning of an implant. Hip replacement through computer navigation provides information and guidance to the surgeon for precise positioning of implants.
Muscle Sparing Anterior Hip Replacement
Muscle sparing anterior hip replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles or tendons as compared to traditional hip replacement that involves cutting major muscles to access the hip joint.
Rapid Recovery Hip Replacement
Rapid recovery hip replacement is an innovative and minimally invasive surgical procedure to replace a damaged hip joint with a prosthesis. It is associated with minimal post-operative pain and discomfort and a shorter recovery time. The surgery can often be performed as an outpatient procedure.
