Minimally invasive hip replacement is more than just a shorter incision. Modern techniques focus on the way surgeons gain access to the hip joint. The Anterior Supine Intramuscular (ASI) approach uses an incision at the front of the hip instead of the side or back. This incision placement allows surgeons to directly approach the hip by going between, rather than through, the muscles that surround it. The goal is to minimize muscle and tendon disruption, making surgery less traumatic for patients, allowing for shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries.
Please join us as Keith Berend, M.D., of Mount Carmel New Albany Surgical Hospital, performs a Taperloc® Microplasty™ Hip replacement through the ASI approach. This procedure will be moderated by Roger Emerson, M.D. and will be performed on a standard OR table for the benefit of surgeons that do not have access to an OSI Hana® or Pro Fx® table. However, additional educational opportunities using these specialized tables are available through Biomet sponsored ASI cadaver courses.
In addition to the ASI approach, Drs. Berend and Emerson will also explore the benefits of the Taperloc® Microplasty™ stem and E-Poly® Antioxidant Infused Technology during this live event.
