What is minimally invasive hip replacement

The mini-posterior approach is similar to the traditional posterior approach except that it requires a smaller incision and exposes less soft tissue. The mini-posterior approach involves separating the muscle fibers of the large buttock muscle located at the side and the back of the hip. The muscle fibers are separated, so the nerve path is not disturbed, and the muscle is not injured. With a minimally invasive surgical technique for hip replacement, combined with advanced pain management techniques, we have seen a significantly shorter hospital length of stay, less blood loss and better...

How to know if you have a rotator cuff injury?

Injury to the rotator cuff can be from an acute traumatic event or chronic overuse. It is not unusual for a patient to have indolent or even sudden pain due to an inflamed rotator cuff without a specific injury. The supraspinatus is the most common rotator cuff tendon to tear, as it is subject to impingement by the overlying bony acromion. In addition, the blood supply at its leading edge where tears are common is poor, which explains why tears occur in this location and typically do not heal well without surgery.
