Stryker Navigation System
Like a GPS system for surgeons, the Stryker Navigation System uses an infrared camera and instruments and unique tracking software to monitor the position, angles and alignment of the joint implant. You'll experience shorter hospital stays, fewer post-operative complications, and greater improved joint stability.
OXFORD Partial Knee System
This procedure removes 75% less bone than total knee replacement and allows for a more rapid recovery with less pain and more natural motion. Although it has been utilized in Europe for more than two decades, the OXFORD Partial Knee System is the only FDS-approved, free-floating meniscal partial knee system available in the U.S.
SIGNATURE Personalized Care System
The SIGNATURE Personalized Care System is developed from a patient's MRI, which is used to create a three-dimensional joint that allows surgeons to provide a more custom fit for patients. This enables the surgeon to use fewer positioning instruments, which makes for a much less invasive procedure.
Anterior Hip Replacement - Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table
The Anterior Approach surgery procedure for hip replacement is a technique that minimizes the pain and time from surgery to recovery. Using the Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table, the Anterior Approach allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or the posterior (back) approach. In this way, the surgeon can simply work through the natural interval between the muscles. The most important muscles for hip function, the gluteal muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur, are left undisturbed and therefore these do not require a healing process.
With its unique capability to position the leg, the Hana® table enables the surgeon to replace the hip through a single incision, without detachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur. The table allows for safe hyperextension, adduction, and external rotation of the leg for femoral component placement – a positioning option not possible with conventional tables. The Hana® table incorporates a patented femoral lift and support system enhancing femoral exposure for improved component placement. The lack of disturbance to the lateral and posterior soft tissues provides immediate stability of the hip after surgery.
Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table is the only surgical table designed exclusively for hip and knee arthroplasty.
While the Hana® table is an innovative device for the Anterior Approach, it is also an excellent resource for many orthopedic surgical procedures including femur fractures (supine or lateral positions), tibia fractures, hip pinnings, hip scopes, and total knee arthroplasties.
About Mizuho OSI
Mizuho OSI manufactures the Hana® Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Surgery Table used primarily in Anterior Approach hip replacement surgery. The merits of this procedure include: 1) less muscle trauma, 2) shorter hospital stay, 3) smaller incision (3 to 5 inches versus 10 to 12 inches), and 4) faster recovery (2 to 8 weeks versus 2 to 4 months). Additional benefits of this procedure may include more rapid return to normal activities, reduced pain, reduced blood loss, reduced tissue healing required, reduced risk of dislocation, more accurate leg length control, and more accurate implant positioning.
Patients of all ages and mobility are seen in our orthopedic center. From sports or exercise related injuries to osteoarthritic patients, our physicians treat a multitude of conditions resulting from disease or injury to the bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.
