Minimally Invasive Arthritic Total Hip Replacement

Baltimore, MD- Sinai Hospital will host a live webcast featuring a Minimally Invasive Total Hip with Large Metal-on-Metal Articulation on December 7, 2004 at 6:00pm (EST) The Procedure will be performed by Dr. Barry Waldman, Director, Center for Joint Preservation and Replacement, and moderated by Dr. Sridhar Durbhakula both from the Rubin Institute for advanced Orthopaedics. This minimally invasive joint arthroplasty offers many benefits to the patient, including a smaller incision, less pain and less recovery time. A large head metal-on-metal articulation will assist the surgeon with providing a very stable joint while addressing the demand for a strong, less wear articulation. The surgery is performed to replace a degenerative hip joint that has become worn out as a result of arthritis, causing the patient intolerable pain.
