Our state-of-the-art technologies and procedures reduce complications and shorten recovery time.

  • Anterior hip approach: allows for the reduction of cutting and reattaching muscles, causing less pain and allowing for a shorter recovery period.
  • Use of long-acting local anesthetic injection: treats pain for up to 72 hours and prevents the need for catheters, pumps or other pain medication delivery systems, creating shortened post-surgical recovery periods and a more rapid initiation of rehabilitation.
  • Blood conservation techniques: used for minimizing blood loss and reducing potential for complications.
  • HANA (Hip And Knee Arthroplasty) tables: allow the surgeon to position the patient in such a way that minimally invasive procedures can be used, producing a smaller incision, less tissue trauma and less pain. Minimally invasive surgery is the preferred surgical approach for knee and hip replacement. It allows the patient the benefit of smaller incisions, less pain, less scarring and injury to the tissue, a shorter hospital stay and a higher accuracy rate.
  • Metal suppression MRI: improves the imaging of soft tissue and bone in patients with metal joint implants.
  • Physical therapy: accelerated programs are started the same day surgery occurs, reducing the risk of post-surgical complications and allowing for faster mobilization.
