SuperPath Hip Replacement

SuperPath Hip Replacement

As our bodies continue to age, joints responsible for weight-bearing activities are subject to mass amounts of wear and tear. While some patients will face no issues in these areas, others will require joint replacement operations to restore their quality of life. If you fall into the latter category, consider working with our team here at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation. When your hip is the joint giving your problems, we can provide you with a SuperPath hip replacement to restore joint function so you can get back to pain-free movement.

When A Hip Replacement Is Needed

It’s common for the body joints to ache from time to time, especially as we get older. Patients should never rush to consider joint replacement surgery, as any invasive procedure can come with risks. However, it’s essential to know when hip replacement surgery is needed to avoid extended periods of pain and suffering. If any of the below situations apply to you, SuperPath hip replacement is likely in your future:

  • Pain medication and physical therapy have offered no relief for your hip pain.
  • Hip pain begins to interfere with your ability to complete everyday tasks.
  • Even while resting, you experience hip pain.
  • Hip pain is being caused by damage to the joint.
  • Hip stiffness has made it increasingly difficult to walk.
  • Severe arthritis is to blame for your hip issues.

What Is SuperPath Hip Replacement

Hip replacement operations involve removing the damaged portion of the joint and replacing it with artificial material. However, SuperPath hip replacements take the process one step further. The SuperPath procedure was designed to replace the joint while sparing as much tissue as possible, substantially improving patients’ recovery time. This procedure differs from traditional hip replacements in the following ways:

  • There is no surgical dislocation of the hip.
  • The incision made for the operation can be as small as three inches.
  • It avoids cutting critical tendons and overstretching or traumatizing the muscles imperative to proper hip function.

The Benefits Of SuperPath Hip Replacement 

Patients who need to undergo hip replacement surgery need to assess each potential operation’s pros and cons. That is why our team at Advanced Orthopedics & Joint Preservation highly recommends working with us. By allowing us to perform a SuperPath hip replacement, you can experience the below benefits:

  • Less pain during recovery than with traditional hip surgeries.
  • Faster recovery process.
  • Shorter stay in the hospital after the operation.
  • Less blood loss.
  • Potential ability to walk the day of surgery.
