Transcript

So we have the room set up here to perform an anterior hip replacement surgery. This table is called the HANA table. This is how we perform the surgery, where the patient's head is up top here, sitting in this chair, lying down flat supine. Their legs are placed in these leg holders on both sides and secured in place. This allows us to enable movement of the legs throughout the procedure, which allows us to gain access to the hip, both in the femoral and acetabular components. The C-arm, another fancy term for an x-ray that we use throughout the procedure, is brought over the patient and the x-rays are taken in this manner. This allows us for the precise identification of how the components are being placed, as well as evaluation of the leg lengths from one side to the other.
