New Surgery Available at North Cypress
New, Less Invasive Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery available At North Cypress Medical Center
More than 192,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States. Typically, a patient is told to limit mobility for 6-8 weeks following traditional surgery. Using the new Anterior Hip Replacement Approach, patients can be up and walking after only one week.
A special flexible table used during the Anterior Hip approach allows the surgeon to make a much smaller, less invasive anterior incision. Less muscle and normal tissue has to be dissected because of the specific location and size of the incision. Improved function, rehabilitation and a speedier recovery is the result.
Dr. James Fogarty, Orthopedic and Joint Surgeon at the North Cypress Medical Center, states, “The majority of my patients are very happy with this operation. We are able to accomplish the same clinical and functional outcome with less pain, recovery time, inconvenience and cost. Everybody wins in this procedure.”
Only a select few centers in Houston are able to perform this type of sophisticated joint surgery, including North Cypress Medical Center. Surgeons including Dr. Fogarty, Dr. Alain Elbaz, and Dr. Stefan Kreuzer are some of the few Orthopedic Surgeons performing this type of surgery in Houston, and have already completed multiple cases at North Cypress with excellent success.
