Dr. Stefan Kreuzer, Board Certified orthopedic surgeon in Houston, Texas, gives a presentation on the advantages of the Direct Anterior Approach for THR.
During a joint replacement procedure, your surgeon will strive to ensure that everything is aligned properly. Accurate alignment of the hip or knee components is critical to the overall function of your new joint,1,2 and it also plays a role in helping your joint feel healthy again, and helping the joint replacement to potentially last longer.
Computer-assisted technology has made it possible for your orthopaedic specialist to navigate joint replacement procedures with a level of accuracy so precise it may improve the results of your surgery.1
What are some of the reasons orthopaedic surgeons choose computer-assisted technology?
- Provides your surgeon with comprehensive data about your anatomy which may result in more exact placement of your joint replacement
- Allows the surgeon to more accurately plan for your surgery with a partial 3-dimensional model of your hip or knee
- Provides the surgeon with control, feedback and the ability to correct potential errors during the surgery1
- Allows for better visualization of anatomy, which is particularly important when minimally-invasive techniques are used
