Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement

A pioneer in orthopedic minimally invasive procedures, the St. Elizabeth team of orthopedic surgeons specializes in minimally invasive knee and hip procedures, like the anterior approach to hip replacement.

Anterior hip replacement surgery uses a minimal incision, placed on the front of the hip. In this approach, the surgeon is able to move the muscles aside rather than cutting through them. Allowing for less damage and trauma to the soft issues around the hip, which leads to faster recovery time. In addition, there is less restriction as well as a lower risk of dislocating the new prosthesis, since the muscles used to support the hip joint have not been surgically disturbed.

Spine Care

Neck pain and back pain are discomforts you shouldn't have to live with. Four out of five Americans will have an episode of back pain during their lifetime, and the effects can range from discomforting to debilitating. Problems may stem from the sciatic nerve. You may also suffer from spinal stenosis.

Common spine conditions include:

  • Sciatica
  • Scoliosis
  • Spinal stenosis
