Help patients get home faster.
With a complete focus on rapid recovery surgical approaches and implants, MicroPort® has partnered with pioneering surgeons in the development of a number of tissue-sparing surgical hip approaches. Our patients have stayed in the hospital for a shorter amount of time, been discharged directly to their home more often, and are less likely to return within 30 days for any reason.1-3
"I think the things that excite me most about the SuperPath® Approach is that the incision size, minimizing the soft tissue trauma. Patients are appreciative of that and the other thing that's very exciting about the SuperPath® Approach is the speed at which they recover. It's been remarkable as far as how fast they're able to get up, move, and get back to their daily activities."
Dr. Anil Thomas MD, Atlanta, GA
"What excites me most about SuperPath® is the pleased look that the patient gives you when you see him back in the office, the realization that they're now back to an active lifestyle, they're not living in pain, they've had a rapid recovery, and they don't have hip restrictions. Which is something that most of them have heard about from someone prior to undergoing hip replacement surgery, and to realize that they can live their life without those restrictions, and to do it in a pain free way is just phenomenal to experience."
Dr. Judd Cummings MD, Scottsdale, AZ
"We see patients many months after the fact, describing circumstances where their hips are feeling better, feeling more natural, feeling more normal than their maybe contralateral hip that was done in another technique."
Dr. Jimmy Chow MD, Phoenix, AZ
"My patients are sometimes on their feet within 3 to 4 hours after surgery. The doctors who refer them are amazed, and so are the physical therapists."
Jimmy Chow MD, Phoenix, AZ
"What excites me most about SuperPath® is that I believe that I've found the technique that's going to give my patients the best outcome."
Dr. Jerome Zechmann MD, Olympia, WA
"We're talking hours of hospital admission [rather than days] and we're talking rapid recovery. This is the term we use at our hospital to get patients up and walking as soon as possible and Anterior PATH® definitely helps that, because there's less muscle damage."
Joseph Assini, MD Denver, CO
"We get an incision that almost dis-appears in the line of the skin and is underneath even the smallest of un-dergarments. So, from the patient's aesthetic perspective, they seem to like it better as well."
Matthew Seidel MD Phoenix, AZ
"All of the patients that I've had come back have been extremely satisfied with their result."
Charles Lawrie, MD St. Louis, MO
