Dallas, TX, April 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- The Dallas Limb Restoration Center is the only center in Dallas-Fort Worth to perform minimally invasive hip and knee replacements that allow patients to go home the next day. Knee and hip replacements are often associated with having a lengthy recovery and not long ago these patients required a 5-7 day hospital stay. Improvements in pain management, surgical techniques, and implant technology allow patients to have surgery in the morning and begin recovery at home the next day. Surgeons at The Dallas Limb Restoration Center are seeing a shift in younger patients requiring joint replacement, many of these patients are healthy and can bypass a lengthy recovery in the hospital. These patients can safely recover at home and get back to a active lifestyle quickly.
The implant technology utilized for next day knees and the AMIS (Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery) surgical approach for anterior hip replacement allow patients to be up and walking a few hours after surgery. The knee implants Dr. Richard Buch utilizes use 3-D printing from a CT scan to create custom implants for each patient. Patients are literally having their exact natural knee recreated not replaced with a mass produced prosthesis. Dr. Victor Hakim’s surgical approach for hip replacement allows him to perform the surgery through a significantly smaller incision not cutting muscles and respecting nerves. He works between the muscles which allows patients to have a much faster recovery as the main stabilizer muscles are undisturbed. The AMIS approach allows patients to take reduced pain medication and eliminates the need for many post operative restrictions that are associated with traditional hip replacement. If you are considering hip or knee replacement most patients can have a new joint today and recover at home tomorrow.
