Dr. Peterson received extensive training in hip replacement while at the Mayo Clinic. He uses minimally invasive techniques including smaller incisions and muscle sparing approaches. His approach is called the Mini-Posterior approach. This approach enters the hip joint through the capsule in the back of the joint and avoids cutting the main hip abductor muscles which are responsible for walking without a limp. The main advantage of this approach is less postop pain, quicker recovery, and less need for crutch/cane. Also their is a much higher chance of walking without a limp after surgery than the traditional anterior muscle splitting approach. Dr. Peterson uses the latest technology and state-of-the art implants and technology to enhance your outcome following surgery. Dr. Peterson’s hip procedures include Total hip replacement, Mobile Bearing Hip Replacement.
November 7, 2014 – Patients had earlier hospital discharge and better pain relief after undergoing total hip arthroplasty performed with a direct anterior approach vs. a posterior approach; however, no significant differences were seen for subjective or objective function at 6 weeks, according to study results presented here by Cale Jacobs, PhD…
…Of the 51 patients with 6 weeks of follow-up, those randomized to the direct anterior approach had significantly greater blood loss during THA compared with patients in the posterior approach group; however, patients in the direct anterior approach group had a significantly shorter hospital stay, no longer required a cane earlier and had greater pain relief at 6 months, according to Jacobs.…
Joint replacement surgery used to require a week-long stay in the hospital, and a long painful recovery. Not so any more. Enhanced recovery means walking into the hospital one morning, and walking out the next, with a new hip.

SALT LAKE CITY, Oct. 28, 2015 – PRNewswire – Since the launch of HipGrid® 12 months ago, orthopedic surgeons have used the HipGrid® technology with great success. The simplicity and intuitive nature of that clinically proven technique addresses proper implant positioning and leg length inequality. Based upon surgeon feedback, OrthoGrid® is now introducing an exciting second generation product — the HipGrid Drone™, an intraoperative radiographic alignment system.
HipGrid Drone™ is a reusable, non-sterile device, specifically conceived to combine improvements in ease of use and surgical technique reproducibility for the surgical team. In addition, it is offered through an innovative pricing model that maximizes cost reduction opportunities by incentivizing administrative expense reductions.
“This is not simply a new product,” says Edouard Saget, Co-Founder of OrthoGrid® Systems, Inc., “it is the transformation into a complete system of what our surgeons are …
The potential benefits of Zimmer MIS 2-Incision hip replacement include:
Less tissue trauma – muscles and tendons are avoided or separated, not cut
Faster and less painful rehabilitation
Smaller incisions and less scarring – two incisions of 1½ to 2 inches each, rather than one 10- to 12-inch incision
Shorter hospital stay – 1-2 days (vs. 3-5 days); some patients go home in less than 24 hours
Reduced blood loss and less need for pre-surgery blood donation
Faster return to work and daily activities

This prospective study compared the incidence of minor and major complications in 50 patients (100 joints) undergoing bilateral total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with 50 patients (100 joints) undergoing bilateral total hip arthroplasty (THA). Gender, comorbidities, American Society of Anesthesiologists scores, and body mass indices were similar in both groups…

Would you please describe the development of the PATH® Technique by Wright Medical Technology, Inc.?
For the past six-plus years, we have taken a special interest in soft tissue preservation techniques as they apply to total hip and knee arthroplasty. I would like to take a moment to clarify, what has been referred to as the PATH® Technique and identify the fact that the PATH® Technique offers direct and with complete access to both the acetabulum and the femur. It eliminates the angular constraints that we faced with other minimally-invasive techniques, specifically posterior techniques that have attempted to use shorter and shorter incisions. The length of the skin incision, I think we all realize now, is not related to the immediate post-operative improvement that we see – it’s the preservation of soft tissue, specifically …
Path Surgical Technique In Hip Replacement Provides Shorter And Less Painful Recovery
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, more than 234,000 total hip replacements are performed in the U.S. each year; a number that has increased dramatically in the last decade. The rise in the number of hip replacements in the U.S. can be attributed to several factors, including aging baby boomers; unwillingness of patients to suffer with hip pain; but also significant advancements in hip replacement technology.
Typical hip replacement surgery requires six weeks to three months for patients to fully recover from what has been, historically, a more traumatic surgical procedure. However, patients treated by Michael Neel, M.D., of orthomemphis p.c., are experiencing much shorter recovery times from a total hip replacement thanks to advances in implant technology combined with an innovative surgical technique developed by Wright Medical called the PATH® Tissue-Preserving Technique.…
