Princeton's Hana Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Table - the first Birmingham hospital to offer this innovation -is specifically designed for minimally invasive orthopedic surgery and offers new patient benefits.
With it, surgeons can better position the body to permit smaller incisions, resulting in less muscle trauma and faster recovery times for patients. The new technology also allows for x-ray imaging during surgery to more accurately control implant placement and leg length.
Procedures utilizing the new technology include:
- Anterior Total Hip Replacement
- Total Knee Replacement
- Oxford Partial Knee Replacement
- Hip Fracture Repair
- Tibia Nail or Femoral Nail Implant
Expected benefits of this new technology include:
- better positioning of the body
- a smaller incision
- less muscle trauma
- faster recovery times
