How you Approach Hip Replacement surgery makes a BIG difference
Easier on your muscles. Faster on your feet.
The Potential Benefits of the Minimally Invasive Anterior Supine Procedure compared to traditional hip replacement are:
If you have an injury to the knee meniscus, knee cartilage, or have chronic knee pain due to a past injury or arthritis, you may be a good candidate for knee cell therapy. Traditional options for patients suffering from these issues include arthroscopic knee surgery or total knee joint replacement. With both surgeries, months of rehab are required to regain strength and mobility, and the patient must be aware of and prepared to take on the risks. As an alternative to knee surgery or knee replacement,cells may help alleviate knee pain and the conditions that cause it with a same-day office injection procedure. Unlike traditional surgery, patients are typically encouraged to walk the same day, and most patients experience very little down time from the procedure.

The side approach to total knee replacement
Dr. Michael Messieh offers a minimally invasive, muscle sparing approach to knee replacement surgery. The muscles over the knee are not cut but rather lifted up out of the way. This medial side approach may result in significantly faster recovery and more strength and mobility in the new knee.
• Our program is often results in the majority of patients going home in 2 days or less!
• Our patients report pain levels < 2 on a scale of 0 to 10 at the time of discharge from the hospital!
• Our patients walk more than 100ft before they go home from the hospital!
• The majority of our patients are just using a cane 1 week after surgery!
Few orthopedic surgeons are trained in this procedure.
Reverse Shoulder Replacement Surgery may be your Best Option
If you are you over the age of 65 and have a painful shoulder with little or no movement, you may benefit from a reverse shoulder replacement. Traditional shoulder replacement surgery may not be a good option for people with shoulder pain who have had previous shoulder surgery, have rheumatoid arthritis, sustained a fracture of the shoulder or have been diagnosed with a large rotator cuff tear that can't be repaired. The recovery from this surgical procedure is faster and less painful than rotator cuff surgery. Most patients leave the hospital the next day and no physical therapy is needed.
