Deciding on a Surgeon for Hip Replacement Surgery
Watch Orthopedic Surgeon's Dr. Bruce Janke and Dr. Steven Naide perform an Anterior Hip Replacement using the innovative hana® table.
The hana® table is a specially designed surgical table that allows for hyperextension, adduction and external rotation of the hip to an extent not possible with conventional tables. While utilizing the table, surgeons are able to replace the hip without detachment of the muscles or tendons from the hip or thigh bones.
With the anterior approach, a small 4 inch incision is made just below and to the outside of the groin. Two muscles are then pushed aside, giving the surgeons access to the hip socket to perform the replacement. No muscles at any time during the procedure are split or detached. For the patient, that results in a faster recovery, less pain, smaller incision, less blood loss and less scarring.
Patients receiving anterior hip replacement experience none of the precautions related to traditional hip replacement, including no post op dislocation precautions, no restriction of post-op activity, immediate use of normal toilet height, no post-op abduction pillow (between the knees) required, cross legs as desired, no shoe lift requirements and no post-op sexual activity limitations.
Orthopedic surgeons Dr. Bruce Janke and Dr. Steven Naide have completed more anterior hip replacements using the hana® table than any other South Florida surgeons.
The Joint Replacement Center at Broward Health North features private patient rooms, family centered patient education, group therapy and the latest advances in joint replacement surgery. The center is certified by the Joint Commission for hip and knee replacement, the first and only hospital in Broward County to achieve this prestigious certification.
