FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: NATIONALLY RENOWNED ORTHOPEDIC SURGEON CO-AUTHORS HIP SURGERY ARTICLE TO BE PRINTED IN THE PRESTIGIOUS BONE & JOINT JOURNAL Douglas J. Roger, M.D., is a pioneer of the Direct Superior Hip Replacement Approach. He co-authored the research article "Greater Inadvertent Muscle Damage in Direct Anterior Approach when Compared to the Direct Superior Approach for Total Hip Arthroplasty," which is "in press" to be printed in the Bone & Joint Journal. PALM SPRINGS, Calif., Oct. 22, 2015 – Dr. Douglas J. Roger is a nationally renowned industry leader in the field of hip replacement surgery. He also co-authored the research article, "Greater Inadvertent Muscle Damage in Direct Anterior Approach when Compared to the Direct Superior Approach for Total Hip Arthroplasty," with Derek F. Amanatullah, M.D., Ph.D., Mark W.
A joint can become damaged and need replacement when it suffers an injury, fracture, or a condition such as osteoarthritis develops, causing the joint to degenerate. Hip joint replacements may also be needed in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, or joint pain caused by swelling, and bone tumors. In the past, hip joint replacements have used metals to compensate for the bone due to it’s durability. My design, is mostly made out of titanium, but the liner is what really makes it unique. Using synthetic cartilage grown from the stem cells found in bone marrow, the joint replacement will have a more natural lubrication. Because of this, the bone itself is protected from direct contact with the harsh metal. All in all, the part would only cost $15.50 to make, and $2,500 for the artificial cartilage, costing $2,515.50 in all. Application is also rather easy.
When the heel height is taken, the doctor presses down on the knee while the heel is brought up. If there is a normal knee to compare the hyperextended knee to, if the heel height is increased, then it could be a diagnosis for genu recurvatum. Usually, when the test is done, if the heel height measures about 10 cm (3.9 inches) then the athlete is diagnosed with genu recurvatum (Loudon et al., 1998). When shown on X-rays, patients with genu recurvatum will show the femur tilting on the tibia. Those who have a greater posterior slope (when the femur is not leaning on the anterior part of the tibia as much) tend to have fewer problems than
In addition, with the “complete tibial side avulsion in athletes” (Phisitkul, James, Wolf, Amendola), I think surgery is needed, in this circumstance. In this situation, it is most likely needed because the tibia translated medially, also rupturing the MCL. First off, the tibia, needs to be realigned but then, the MCL ligament needs surgery because it is way out of alignment as well. In my opinion, if it was considered nonoperative in this scenario, the ends of the ligaments would have to be aligned in center with each other. In this case, they are not, so with surgery the collagen fibers can be sutured for alignment, which will allow for proper healing.
Other possible advantages count as a less probability of hip dislocation which is there due to great dimension femoral head (given that patient has the right amount of femoral head), and an easy access of unique bones with the surgeons. Metal wear, fractures of femoral necks and hygiene issues that results in uninfected surgery are some of the disadvantages these surgery features. As the femoral neck is totally conserved during the operation, differences in leg length of the patients is also be witnessed. THR consequences in toe-out or toe-in or faults. These are also ended because the femoral neck is kept untouched.
There is moderate to severe narrowing of right and severe narrowing of the left L4-5 neural foramina. At L5-S1, there is a 4-mm posterior osteophyte-disc complex with moderate narrowing of the neural foramina bilaterally. Per operative report dated 05/20/2015, the patient
Death: a reality that rarely crosses people 's mind, with a major exception being when one crosses the threshold of an operating room. The operating room holds a special terror for both patients and their family members. For the patients, they must face the possibility that they could fall into an eternal slumber, and for the family members, they must recognize the fact that their beloved has a chance of not surviving. It is even more agonizing when a new procedure like the anterior approach hip replacement fails to uphold its reputation: one as a new, innovated technique meant to improve the quality of life, not destroy it. The mortality rate for the anterior approach hip replacement is far too devastating considering the fact that the posterior
The broken bones will be put back into their normal positions. The surgeon will use a combination of screws, screws and a metal plate, or different types of wiring to hold the bones in place. After the bones are back in place, the surgeon will close the incision using stitches or staples. A bandage (dressing) and a cast or supportive boot will be placed over your ankle. AFTER THE PROCEDURE
IW had a left C2-C3 and C4-C5 TFEI on 7/20/15.Pre/post visual analog scale (VAS) score is 5/10 to 2/10 (50% pain relief). IW had a right C2-3 and C4-5 TFEI on 3/09/15. Pre and post visual analog scale (VAS) score is 7/10 to 3/10 (50% pain relief). Relief lasted 2-3 months for each procedure. With radicular symptoms resolved, household chores made easier.
The implementation of ICD-10 brought with it 264 new codes, 143 deleted, and 134 revised codes that apply to coding for an orthopedic practice. This is in addition to new rules related to modifier 59 and the introduction of the applicable modifiers XU, XE, XP, and XS. There are also changes with regard to the way that injuries and diseases are classified, a new focus on laterality, and revisions to relevant terminology. Noted required documentation specifics: Laterality, site specificity, encounter type (initial, subsequent, consulting, operative, post-op), combination codes (there are only a few combination codes utilized in orthopedic procedures, i.e. M54.4 lumbago with sciatica), and place of occurrence

DOI: 4/16/2012. Patient is a 29-year-old male technician who sustained injury when he was 25-feet up on a ladder when the ladder slid and he fell onto the pavement. He had an open reduction internal fixation (ORIF x 2) for a compound tibia fibula fracture and had hardware removal in 4/25/2013. MRI of the lumbar spine performed on 3/24/2016 revealed L5-S1 small right paracentral disc protrusion without significant spinal canal stenosis or neuroforaminal narrowing.
