“Short-term outcome and complication data from the state joint replacement registry demonstrate that total hip arthroplasty performed using either the direct anterior approach or posterior approach have no compelling advantage over each other, including no difference in the dislocation risk,” Joseph D. Maratt, MD, of the University of Michigan Health System, said in his presentation.… Read the Rest

The surgical approach to total hip replacement (THR)—either from the front of the body or the side/back (anterior versus posterior)—has no impact on outcomes six months after surgery, according to research presented today at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS).
Total hip replacement is extremely common with more than 300,000 surgeries performed in the U.S. each year. Traditionally, most THRs … Read the Rest
Dr. Peterson received extensive training in hip replacement while at the Mayo Clinic. He uses minimally invasive techniques including smaller incisions and muscle sparing approaches. His approach is called the Mini-Posterior approach. This approach enters the hip joint through the capsule in the back of the joint and avoids cutting the main hip abductor muscles which are responsible for walking without a limp. The main… Read the Rest
November 7, 2014 – Patients had earlier hospital discharge and better pain relief after undergoing total hip arthroplasty performed with a direct anterior approach vs. a posterior approach; however, no significant differences were seen for subjective or objective function at 6 weeks, according to study results presented here by Cale Jacobs, PhD…
…Of the 51 patients with 6 weeks of follow-up, those randomized to the direct anterior approach had significantly greater … Read the Rest
Joint replacement surgery used to require a week-long stay in the hospital, and a long painful recovery. Not so any more. Enhanced recovery means walking into the hospital one morning, and walking out the next, with a new hip.

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 28, 2015 – PRNewswire – Since the launch of HipGrid® 12 months ago, orthopedic surgeons have used the HipGrid® technology with great success. The simplicity and intuitive nature of that clinically proven technique addresses proper implant positioning and leg length inequality. Based upon surgeon feedback, OrthoGrid® is now introducing an exciting second generation product — the HipGrid Drone™, an intraoperative radiographic alignment system.
HipGrid Drone… Read the Rest
The potential benefits of Zimmer MIS 2-Incision hip replacement include:
Less tissue trauma – muscles and tendons are avoided or separated, not cut
Faster and less painful rehabilitation
Smaller incisions and less scarring – two incisions of 1½ to 2 inches each, rather than one 10- to 12-inch incision
Shorter hospital stay – 1-2 days (vs. 3-5 days); some patients go home in less than 24 hours
Reduced blood loss and less need for pre-surgery

This prospective study compared the incidence of minor and major complications in 50 patients (100 joints) undergoing bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with 50 patients (100 joints) undergoing bilateral total hip arthroplasty (THA). Gender, comorbidities, American Society of Anesthesiologists scores, and body mass indices were similar in both groups…

Would you please describe the development of the PATH® Technique by Wright Medical Technology, Inc.?
For the past six-plus years, we have taken a special interest in soft tissue preservation techniques as they apply to total hip and knee arthroplasty. I would like to take a moment to clarify, what has been referred to as the PATH® Technique and … Read the Rest
