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.
Only Hospital with Two Tables Specially Designed for Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery
Deerfield Beach, FL – Broward Health North Broward Medical Center has purchased an additional hana® table, making it the only hospital in South Florida to own two of these unique tables designed specifically to aide orthopedic surgeons in the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery.
Deerfield Beach, FL – Broward Health North Broward Medical Center orthopedic surgeons are now performing hip resurfacing using the anterior approach as part of the services offered through the Joint Replacement Program.
Hip resurfacing is a bone conserving procedure where the arthritic surface or damaged area of the ball of the hip is reshaped and capped with a prosthesis rather than completely removed as in a total hip replacement. The damaged hip socket is also fitted with a prosthesis.
