Find out why the Superpath method is the best possible option in hip replacement surgery! Which are its advantages compared to other techniques and why you should choose this method if you suffer from hip osteoarthritis?
When your hip has been affected by arthritis, a fracture, or other conditions, even common activities such as walking, getting in and out of a chair or putting on your shoes and socks may be painful and seem quite difficult. Also, your hip may be stiff and, as a result, you may even feel uncomfortable while resting.
If medications, restrictions in your everyday activities or the use of walking supports do not adequately help your symptoms, you may consider hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant, the hip prosthesis. Most of the surgical approaches are options that involve some kind of trauma to the surrounding muscles and tissues and can lead to long recovery period as well as missed time at work. Nevertheless, a lot of techniques have been developed in the recent years which have revolutionized both the surgical procedure and the rehabilitation after a hip replacement.
Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS)
The Mini-Posterior Approach is possibly the most common total hip approach associated with the term “Minimally Invasive Surgery” or MIS Total Hip Replacement. Despite being a simple procedure, Mini-Posterior approach involves cutting through several muscle structures as well as tendons. With this approach, patients usually walk the day after surgery, probably due to the large amount of pain-killing injections the patient receives during surgery, but not because of less muscle damage. Several studies have shown that this technique may have a frequent incidence of post-operative hip dislocations.
Like the aforementioned approach, the Anterior Approach was designed to prevent doctors from excessive cutting of muscles and tendons while allowing them to reduce the occurrence of post-operative hip dislocations. Clinical studies have shown that this approach reduces damage to soft tissue and is associated with fast recovery; however, the procedure may be difficult to perform as the surgeon has limited working space and is approaching the joint from a different view than they are traditionally accustomed.
SuperPath method; the micro-hip replacement method
The surgical technique for a SuperPath Hip Replacement has been a revolution to traditional total hip replacement. This technique is a tissue-sparing procedure which aims to get patients back on their feet within days (possibly hours) instead of weeks or months. Its advantages are numerous regarding both the surgical procedure and the rehabilitation period:
No surgical dislocation of the hip
Less invasive procedure
Tiny incision (as little as 3 inches)
Reconstruction of the hip without cutting critical tendons or stretching and traumatizing important muscles for the hip function
More tissue left intact compared to traditional surgery
Minimal bleeding during surgery
No dislocation of the head of the hip at any point of the procedure
During surgery, the patient takes a “fetus” position which enables the muscles to be more relaxed and makes the procedure easier for the doctor.
The Superpath method is ideal for those who are in need of a fast recovery process, given that they are athletes, they do technical jobs or agricultural work or their work requires a lot of weight lifting, as:
Patients get back on their feet within days or even hours, instead of weeks or months.
They can walk unassisted the day after the surgery.
The hospital stay is too short (typically less than 2 days).
There is no range of movement restrictions after they leave the hospital.
It is less possible that a dislocation may occur in the future.
It allows patients to return quickly in their daily activities as well as their work.
