The following video is a collection of testimonials from patients who have had a hip replacement using the SuperPath technique.
Listen to Dr. Sciortino discuss the SuperPath hip technique with Dr. Michael Jones on the Eye on Health show on FM News Talk Radio 97.1.
The surgical technique for a SUPERPATH® Hip Replacement was developed as an advancement to traditional total hip replacement. The SUPERPATH® technique is a tissue-sparing procedure which aims to get patients back on their feet within days (possibly hours) instead of weeks or months. A number of patients who have undergone this procedure are able to walk unassisted the day after surgery, and leave the hospital without the typical restrictions (such as crossing their legs) associated with total hip replacement.
SUPERPATH® hip replacement is a differentiated total hip technique being performed by a growing number of experienced surgeons.
With SUPERPATH®, there is no surgical dislocation of the hip. Patients can also have as little as a 3-inch incision. It is important to understand that "less invasive" does not only refer to the incision but also means less trauma to the muscles and tendons under the skin. A SUPERPATH® Hip Replacement is designed to precisely reconstruct the hip without cutting critical tendons and stretching or traumatizing muscles that are important to hip function.
Because of the elimination of damage to these important structures during reconstruction, patients typically have a short hospital stay and a number of patients walk the same day as their surgery.
