Deerfield Beach, FL – Broward Health North Broward Medical Center orthopedic surgeons Dr. Bruce Janke and Dr. Steven Naide recently completed their 300th anterior hip replacement using the specifically designed hana table. North Broward Medical Center is one of only a handful of area hospitals featuring the hana table, which is exclusively designed to aide surgeons in the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery.
Is hip pain keeping you from doing the things you love? Are you considering hip replacement surgery but don’t want the pain, long recovery and precautions associated with traditional hip surgery? You have a choice. Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery using the specially designed Hana table is an innovative, new procedure that allows surgeons to replace the hip without cutting any muscles; resulting in less pain, less scarring and a faster recovery.
North Broward Medical Center to Educate Community on the Latest Advancements in Hip & Knee Replacements
Dr. Bruce Janke, Medical Director of the Joint Replacement Center at Broward Health North Broward Medical Center, and Dr. Steven Naide will host an educational, community lecture on the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery and the latest advancements in knee replacement surgery, including the use of computerized navigation that provides for more accurate alignment and better long term results.
It used to be, for a total hip replacement you could expect to be out of commission for weeks on end, using a walker, crutches, and plenty of caution to avoid any problems. But a new technique offered at North Broward Medical Center (NBMC) has patients up and walking the same day as surgery. Dr. Bruce Janke, medical director for the hip and knee replacement center created a year ago at NBMC, said the new technique allows for faster rehabilitation.
As joint replacement techniques and prosthesis materials continue to improve, increasing number of patients are turning to this procedure to ease joint pain and return to a more active lifestyle.
