A New Hip Surgery Allows for Faster Recovery

Date: Wednesday, April 23
Time: 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Scott Faucett, MD, MS, Assistant Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery

Discover what you can do to treat your hip pain, and – in severe cases – what joint replacement involves. Learn how surgeons at GW Hospital use a HANA™ orthopaedic table for anterior hip replacement surgery. The HANA™ improves access to the hip and gives surgeons at GW Hospital the ability to replace a hip joint between the muscles rather than detaching them from the bone. This approach also allows the surgeon to confirm accurate alignment and positioning of the implant – all of which is done through one small incision. The anterior approach for hip replacement surgery and accelerated rehabilitation have helped to significantly improve the outcome of hip replacement surgery, allowing patients to return more quickly to a normal, healthy lifestyle.

Back and Neck Pain

Date: Wednesday, May 14
Time: 7 – 8:30 p.m.
Joseph R. O'Brien, MD, Associate Director of Orthopaedic Spine Surgery; Warren Yu, MD, Chief, Spine Section Department of Orthopaedic Surgery.
