BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/
La Peer Health Systems has announced its new hip surgery program that includes hip surgery procedures, total hip replacement surgery and a cutting-edge hip preservation treatment known as periacetabular osteotomy (PAO).
"Introducing this new orthopedic program will provide our patients with a variety of options for treatment that will best resolve their current condition, provide relief and minimize the need for future procedures," said Dr. Tigran Garabekyan. "The ability to choose between performing a total hip replacement or a hip preservation surgery can have a huge impact on the mobility after the procedure, so it is important that we evaluate each patient carefully and determine who is a candidate for hip preservation or if the patient would be best served by a total hip replacement. Either way, our patients can be sure we'll do what is right for them."
The new hip surgery program at La Peer is run by world-class physicians and is designed to treat a range of hip conditions. Patients suffering from a variety of hip ailments including joint conditions, injuries of the hip, hip dysplasia, hip arthritis, hip joint infections, cartilage tears and hip fractures can benefit from the numerous surgical procedures offered.
Consulting with one of the expert physicians at La Peer, the appropriate surgery will be selected for each patient based on their unique anatomy. The program will specialize in minimally invasive procedures, for the complete listing of treatments, visit https://lapeerhealth.com/hip-surgery/.
Leading in innovation, La Peer will introduce the PAO procedure. PAO is the latest hip preservation surgery that was developed by Swiss orthopedic surgeon Prof. Reinhold Ganz and is intended to prevent or completely eliminate the need for a total hip replacement. PAO was specifically developed to treat hip dysplasia caused by a deformity in the acetabulum. This type of hip dysplasia is often present from birth but does not become noticeable until adolescence or sometimes into adulthood. It can result in limited movement and painful osteoarthritis. PAO patients must be first qualified as a good candidate for the surgery based on age and other factors.
Once treated, patients are able to recover and continue participating in physical activities between six to 12 months after surgery, which is often not the case for patients that require a total hip replacement. La Peer describes in detail the benefits of the PAO procedure on its website, https://lapeerhealth.com/hip-surgery/pao/.
