29 Jul Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement in Nassau County & Brooklyn
The hips are a critical part of your body’s core. The hips move and bear most of your weight while providing you with a vast range of motion. Over time, wear and tear is expected in the hip joints. However, if you’re living with debilitating hip pain, conservative treatments may no longer be helpful. At Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation, our Brooklyn orthopedist offers minimally invasive hip replacement surgery in Nassau County & Brooklyn to help patients resume their favorite activities pain-free.
Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement
One of the most successful procedures available to patients today is hip replacement surgery. There are two types of hip replacement available – traditional and minimally invasive. Whether your Brooklyn orthopedist recommends one or the other will depend on several factors surrounding your condition. Both procedures involve removing the damaged portion of the hip and replacing it with an implant to restore mobility and function. Minimally invasive hip replacement is a relatively newer procedure that involves less disruption of the soft tissue and muscles in the area and smaller incisions.
We offer SuperPath hip replacements to our patients to help restore joint function. This procedure was designed to replace the joint while sparing as much tissue as possible, which remarkably improves the patient’s recovery time. This procedure involves no surgical dislocation of the hip, and the incision for the operation can be as small as three inches. It also avoids overstretching the muscles that are imperative to proper hip function. SuperPath hip replacement patients can experience less pain during recovery, a faster recovery process, and a shorter hospital stay following their operation.
When Is A Hip Replacement Needed?
As our bodies continue to age, it’s common for joints to ache occasionally. You should not rush the decision to undergo joint replacement surgery, but it’s essential to know when this surgery is necessary to avoid prolonged periods of pain. If any of the following situations apply to you, a Brooklyn orthopedist may recommend hip replacement:
- Conservative treatments have offered no relief for your hip pain.
- Your hip pain interferes with your ability to complete daily activities.
- You experience hip pain at rest.
- Arthritis is causing your hip problems.
- You have difficulty walking.
- Your hip pain is being caused by damage to the joint.
