Surgical Applications — Hip

Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Recommend: Ortho-Light OM2130

  • Repair of the ball, stem and socket of the hip

How, When and Why it Helps

  • Visualization is key for proper positioning of the implants
  • The Ortho-Light allows for illumination inside of the incision during implant placement

Hip Revisions

Recommend: Ortho-Light OM2130

  • Repair a previous THR procedure
How, When and Why it Helps

  • In addition to the removal of previous implants and addition of new implants bone grafts are sometimes necessary to repair existing bone structure
  • The Ortho-Light allows for excellent visualization of the existing bone and surgical site

Anterior/MIS Hip Replacement

Recommend: Ortho-Light OM2130

  • A hip replacement performed through a minimally invasive incision
  • Could also be an anterior approach to hip replacement rather than posterior
  • Better recovery time frame for the patient in comparison to a standard THR
How, When and Why it Helps

  • In order to accurately place and insert the hip implant through a small incision proper visualization is absolutely necessary
  • Extra light from the Ortho-Light in the incision can be an invaluable tool for this procedure
