Cutting Edge Technology
The HANA® Table
At our Toronto orthopedic surgery centre, we use the HANA® Table, a specially designed surgical table that allows for manipulation of the hip during the procedure. The HANA® table allows our surgeons to perform DA hip replacement surgery safely and more effectively than the traditional approach.
Intellijoint’s 3D Mini-Optical Navigation System
Clearpoint Health Network’s Toronto orthopedic surgical centre also uses Intellijoint’s 3D mini-optical navigation system during the surgery. This tool enables our surgeons ensure proper positioning and equalization of leg length during total hip arthroplasty surgery, allowing for better outcomes and quicker recovery.
What does DA Hip Replacement Surgery treat?
If you have been told you need a hip replacement due to worn or damaged hip joints, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis, you are a good candidate for private DA hip replacement surgery at Clearpoint Health Network’s Toronto Surgical Centre. If you are under age 60 and very active or have a physically demanding occupation, you might be a candidate for the bone-preserving hip resurfacing procedure at Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary.
Preparing for and Recovery After DA Hip Replacement Surgery
We work with you pre- and post-op to ensure you have the right local supports in place. Most patients arrive in Toronto or Calgary the day before surgery and return home two to three days after surgery. You will stay overnight in the hospital after surgery.
It is important to remember that Direct Anterior hip replacement is major surgery.
Our team of doctors and nurses will work with you to ensure you have a safe and quick recovery, but setbacks and complications can happen and there is typically post-operative pain and swelling. Everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic, but in our experience, the DA total hip replacement approach allows for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible.
