Birmingham Hip Resurfacing
An exciting new alternative to total hip replacement is now available in the United States. Used successfully for years around the globe, the BIRMINGHAM HIP Resurfacing System has recently been approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in the United States. Now, patients suffering from hip pain due to arthritis, dysplasia or avascular necrosis can benefit from its conservative approach to treatment.
The ConforMIS Personalized Knee Resurfacing Implant
The knee is the largest and one of the most complex joints in the body. A healthy knee is able to bend, flex, rotate, and glide allowing for normal pain-free motion. If you or someone you know is considering a total knee replacement, take the time to explore ConforMIS personalized knee resurfacing implants.
Advances in orthopedic care
Not long ago, a serious bone or joint problem meant major surgery was inevitable. But now, many joints can be repaired with minimally-invasive arthroscopic techniques.
In arthroscopic procedures, an orthopedic specialist makes incisions, about the size of a buttonhole, and inserts a tiny camera and pencil thin instruments into the joint. The camera transmits images to a monitor, which the surgeon uses to view the procedure. This remarkable technology allows the surgeon to repair tears and other joint problems without major surgery.
Many arthroscopic procedures do not require an overnight hospital stay. Patients return to the comforts of home sooner and generally experience less pain and faster healing.
Hip and knee replacement can help many people with debilitating joint pain return to active lives. Joints are formed at the ends of two or more bones connected by tissue called cartilage. Healthy cartilage provides a cushion for the bones, but when the cartilage is damaged or wears away, the bones can rub against each other, causing great pain. Joint replacement can reduce pain, restore movement to the joint, and improve the overall quality of a patient's life.
When only a portion of the joint is damaged, a surgeon may be able to perform partial joint replacement.
