Dual Incision Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery

Orthopaedics: St. Cloud Hospital in St. Cloud, MN will webcast its first Dual Incision Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery with the Stryker Navigation system on November 16, 2004, at 4:30pm EST. Dr. Joseph P. Nessler, St. Cloud Orthopedic Associates, will perform the surgery. Dr. Frank R. Kolisek, Assistant Clinical Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, will moderate the procedure. The combination of a dual incision minimally invasive procedure with the electronic imaging of navigation is redefining the world of total hip replacement. A surgical procedure is successful when a surgeon achieves the right combination of implant, technique and patient. The dual incision approach in this procedure is not only muscle sparing, but also minimizes trauma to soft tissue and may allow patients to rehabilitate faster. Dr. Kolisek will help participating surgeons better understand patient selection criteria for minimally invasive procedures and how they should approach minimally invasive surgery as opposed to traditional hip replacement surgery.
