Scott Zellner: An American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons survey from November 2016 shows 34 percent of surgeons are doing the Anterior Approach, which is quite remarkable. Since 2004 we have partnered with Dr. Joel Matta, a pioneer in the space to conduct surgeon education about the Anterior Approach and back then, 1 to 2 percent of surgeons were doing it. To see this climb to 34 percent nationally is really remarkable. We are seeing numbers higher than the industry average, however, with upwards of 40 percent of DePuy Synthes users performing the Anterior Approach.

There are many underlying causes of hip pain with the most common being arthritis. Careful clinical evaluation which consists of a history, physical exam and x–rays leads to a diagnosis of the correct pathology in most individuals. Occasionally further diagnostic testing (MRI, CT scan, bone scan, blood test) and repeated examination may be required.
The treatment rendered depends upon the diagnosis as well as the individual’s needs. The majority of hip complaints can be treated with conservative measures consisting of observation, medication, physical therapy, and occasional injections. However, if the disease has progressed to the extent that conservative modalities yield little benefit, surgical intervention may be warranted.
Hip arthritis progressively limits a person’s activities of daily living as well as quality of life. It is a major cause of disability world wide. The advent of modern total hip arthroplasty offers a patient a highly successful and reliable procedure that improves function and alleviates their pain.…
At Florida Orthopaedic Specialists we offer the latest technological treatments for total hip replacement, the Muscle Sparring method. This procedure requires NO muscle or tendon detachment, and the incision length is approximately 3-4 ½ inches instead of the usual 12-15 inches with a traditional hip replacement surgery. The result is a majority of patients require a shorter hospital stay, have minimal pain and are able to walk with a cane in 24 hours.…
AAOS New’s Release September 06, 2017
Original Press Release Here
Washington, DC–On August 30, 2017, the American Association of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) submitted comments to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on its “Hospital Outpatient Prospective Payment and Ambulatory Surgical Center Payment Systems” proposed rule. The comments highlight a number of concerns, including those related to computed/digital radiography changes, social risk factors and risk stratification, physician-owned hospitals, and needed health care system flexibilities. On the radiography changes, AAOS commented that the reduction in payments for services utilizing computed radiography technology is unreasonable; “providers who offer in-office services to improve access and convenience to patients should not be penalized for using this time-tested technology.” AAOS also called for further hardship exceptions in reporting requirements, electronic health records improvements, and increased access to Medicare claims data.
In addition, CMS in this rule proposed removing total knee arthroplasty from the Medicare inpatient-only list, which includes procedures that are only paid for under the Hospital Inpatient Prospective Payment System.…
Published on Jul 17, 2015 Dr. Hedley of Hedley Orthopaedic Institute talks about the direct anterior approach versus the direct posterior approach to hip replacement.
“I think I can honestly say that I have done every approach to the hip there is, and I’ve settled on the approach that I use for–what I consider–a number of very good reasons,” says Dr. Hedley, founder of Hedley Orthopaedic Institute (Phoenix, Mesa and Tempe, AZ). http://www.hedleyortho.com/hedley/
“I’ve now done over 10,000 joints in this hospital, and I’d like to think we’ve provided a good service. And if I can improve the outcome in the patient in any way, I’m going to do that. It’s what I’m here for.”
Benefits of Direct Posterior Approach
– Much gentler surgical approach
– Blood loss is less
– Analgesia is less
– Complications are less
– “My patients are leaving the hospital the next day,” says Dr.…
