If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or
other conditions, you may be experiencing difficulty when performing your daily
activities. Activities such as cleaning your house, taking your dog for a walk,

If medications, changes in your everyday activities, and
the use of walking aids do not adequately help your symptoms, you may want to
consider hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery is a safe and

Total hip replacement is a surgery for replacing the hip socket and the "ball" or head of the thigh bone (femur). The surgeon resurfaces the socket and ball where cartilage and bone have been lost, and then inserts an artificial ball and socket into healthy bone.
These advanced surgical techniques preserve soft tissue and enable patients to shorten their recovery to weeks, rather than months as in traditional approaches.
SuperPath Supercapsular (Percutaneously-Assisted Total Hip) technique is a tissue-sparing procedure which splits, rather than releasing muscles and allows the hip to remain located. Patients leave the hospital without the typical restrictions (such as crossing their legs) associated with total hip replacement.
