Orthopedic Hip Surgery

The orthopedic hip surgeons at Beaumont are dedicated to the care of patients with disabling hip joint disorders. Arthritis of these joints is the most common reason for hip surgery and frequently, hip replacement is the treatment of choice. Thousands of hip replacement operations are performed at Beaumont each year, including total hip replacement, hip resurfacing and hip revision surgery. Beaumont specialists perform more joint replacement procedures than anyone else in the state of Michigan and nearly any other program in the country.

Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak is also a regional referral center for patients requiring more complex hip revision surgery for failed total joints. Several of our hip surgeons have special training in joint preservation procedures designed to prevent progression of arthritic or congenital disease in the young adult. The latest technology and techniques are applied in all cases. The orthopedic surgeons actively support education and research. Beaumont is among a select group of American hospitals approved for advanced fellowship training in joint reconstruction.

Hip Surgical Procedures

Smaller Incisions and Less Pain for Hip Replacements

A new, rotating, carbon composite surgical table now available at Beaumont hospitals in Royal Oak, Troy and Grosse Pointe is dramatically reducing hospital stays and recovery times for those needing a hip replacement. This high-tech table enables the physician to perform minimally invasive hip surgery resulting in a smaller incision, less tissue trauma and less pain.

The unique hip and knee arthroplasty surgical table, called the HANA table, allows hyperextension and external rotation during hip replacement, decreasing the average hospital stay to two to four days compared to the conventional three to six days, and cuts recovery time to two to six weeks as opposed to two to four months.

The table allows the hip surgeon to position the patient in such a way that no muscles are cut, leaving a four to five-inch incision, compared to the usual incision of 10 to 12 inches. The HANA table minimizes trauma under the skin during anterior hip replacement procedures. Surgeons reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the side or back, allowing work to be done through the natural interval between the muscles.
