  • Anterior Hip Resurfacing
    The benefits of the Direct Anterior Approach in Hip Resurfacing is avoidance of detaching major muscle groups from bone, a higher likelihood of maintaining the blood supply to the remaining femoral neck, less likelihood of dislocation as the dynamic hip stabilizer (short external rotators) is completely unaffected (posterior approach releases all the dynamic stabilizer of the hip), and less likelihood for the patient to experience a limp since the abductor is not released from the greater trochanter (as in the anterior lateral approach).

  • Anterior Hip Replacement
    The anterior approach is an approach to the front of the hip joint as opposed to a lateral (side) approach to the hip or posterior (back) approach. It is a true anterior approach to the hip and should not be confused with the Harding approach which is often referred to as an anterior approach.

  • Computer Assisted Surgery
    During a joint replacement procedure, your surgeon will strive to ensure that everything is aligned properly. Accurate alignment of the hip or knee components is critical to the overall function of your new joint, 1, 2 and it also plays a role in helping your joint feel healthy again, and helping the joint replacement to potentially last longer.

  • Robotic Partial Knee Resurfacing
    MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing is an innovative treatment option for patients living with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee.
