Drs. Janke and Naide Perform An Anterior Hip Replacement Using The hana® Table

Many individuals have joint pain that hampers everyday activities, either because of arthritis, a fracture or other conditions. If medications and use of aids such as a cane are not helpful, patients, after consultation with their doctor, may find relief from their pain with joint replacement surgery. The goal of joint replacement surgery is to relieve joint pain caused by damage to the cartilage or bone.

At North Broward Medical Center, Drs. Janke and Naide use what is called a hana® table. The hana® table is a specially designed surgical table that allows for hyperextension, adduction and external rotation of the hip to an extent not possible with conventional tables. While utilizing the table, surgeons are able to replace the hip without detachment of the muscles or tendons from the hip or thigh bones.

With the anterior approach, a small four-inch incision is made just below and to the outside of the groin. Two muscles are then pushed aside, giving the surgeons access to the hip socket to perform the replacement. No muscles at any time during the procedure are split or detached. For the patient, that results in a faster recovery, less pain, smaller incision, less blood loss and less scarring.
