''I am pleasantly surprised at how quickly I felt better,'' Dean said. ''Following surgery, I was sore, but not in any pain. I didn’t even take any pain medication afterward, because I felt so good!''
Dean travels frequently for his job, and said that travel had become unbearable because of his hip pain. ''Now that I have had the SuperPATH procedure, I am excited for my next flight, which I know will be free of pain and discomfort.''
Dean’s experience is typical of SuperPATH patients.
“Historically, hip replacement surgery has been an invasive surgical procedure with a long recovery time,'' said Dr. Chow. ''With SuperPATH, we spare the surrounding soft tissue, which enables patients to heal quickly and results in fewer post-operative limitations. Most patients can leave the hospital within 24 hours of the procedure.”
Additionally, the SuperPATH approach can be customized for each patient’s needs.
“Unlike most other minimally invasive techniques, the SuperPATH approach is an adjustable approach, allowing for appropriate surgical implantation regardless of most deformities,” Dr. Chow said.
