Total Hip Surgery : The Direct Anterior Total Hip Replacement procedure is now offered here in Scottsdale. We are the same team that you that you have known and trusted with your patients for the past 27 years.
A new beginning in orthopedics and Total Hip Surgery
Anterior hip replacement is one of those “disruptive technologies” that makes other procedures seem almost obsolete by comparison. We can now use a special traction table, without cutting muscles are, and some patients may go home on the same day of surgery if they choose to. This is a remarkable hip surgery procedure.
Experience in Scottsdale that You Can Trust
I have now performed over 1000 of these hip procedures, and am able to say that my overall results are better than those compared to the older posterior approach. I have seen Less complications in every category when compared to the “standard” posterior total hip replacement.
All operations have a risk of complications. The relative risk with an anterior hip is less in Dr. Kozinn’s experience. As of March 2015 approximate complication rates in our group of anterior hips:
- Hip dislocations: .58 %
- Deep Hip Infections: .1%
- Femur Fractures and cortical perforations: .2%
- Revision for Loosening: .1%
- Symptomatic DVT: .1%
- Pulmonary embolus: .1%
- Significant Leg Length Inequality: .5%
- psoas tendonitis/bursitis/ impingement pain: .4%
- permanent nerve palsy: 0% (both superficial and deep nerves)
Tuning Up the HANA table
Scottsdale Healthcare – Osborn
We utilize the natural “inter-nervous” anatomic plane between the Sartorious and Tensor muscles (10 &11 below), which brings you directly onto the anterior hip capsule.
The HANA table allows positioning of the leg in a way that creates space to implant the device without cutting any muscle.
Patients walk immediately with little pain, and have no dislocation precautions to worry about, allowing them to return to work and activities much faster.
