Anterior hip replacement is one of the newest procedures available to ProHealth Care Orthopedic Center patients needing hip replacement surgery. Oconomowoc Memorial Hospital was the first in the metro-Milwaukee area to offer this minimally invasive surgery using the HANA table. The special operating table allows the surgeon to more effectively move the leg during surgery to best position the hip socket, ball and femur insert for proper fit. The HANA table also allows the surgeon to take X-rays during the procedure to ensure precise fit and placement of all components.
“Most patients who are candidates for traditional hip replacement surgery are also candidates for the anterior procedure,” Dr.…
