The Anterior Hip Replacement is an innovative technique for patients who need a total hip replacement.
This minimally-invasive approach involves a small incision on the front of your hip instead of the side or back, and does not involve detaching muscles from the hip bone. Patients receive the benefit of an enhanced, early recovery after surgery compared to traditional hip replacement, no limp, and will have a greatly reduced chance of dislocation. Most patients are able to go home the same day of the procedure and do not have to spend the night in the hospital. Coupled with Dr. Seng’s Rapid Recovery Program, there is a very low risk of blood clots.
Dr. Seng has extensive experience in this procedure, and has used it for most of his patients since 2009, also using it on some revision hip replacement surgeries. The vast majority of patients are a candidate for this procedure.
Partial Knee Replacement Surgery is a minimally-invasive procedure in which the surgeon removes only the damaged tissue and bone in the knee joint and replaces it with a prosthetic. The most common reason to have a partial knee replacement is to relieve severe arthritis pain, and your doctor may recommend this procedure if you have knee pain that keeps you up at night or prevents you from doing daily activities, and if it persists despite other treatments. Partial knee replacement may be a good choice if you have arthritis on only one side of the knee.
Most patients recover quickly and have much less pain than they did before surgery. Many patients are able to walk without a cane or walker within 3-4 weeks after surgery. Most forms of exercise including walking, swimming and biking are safe after surgery, although you should avoid high-impact activities such as jogging.
Total Knee Replacement surgery is a procedure in which the surgeon removes damaged cartilage and bone from the knee joint and replaces them with prostheses. Total knee replacements are typically performed to relieve severe arthritis pain, and your doctor may recommend this procedure if:
Most patients are now able to go home the same day as their surgery, allowing them to sleep in their own bed. Some patients may need to stay 1-2 nights in the hospital depending on their medical history and support system at home. The result of a total knee replacement is usually excellent and relieves pain for most people.
