Pre-operative image of a 54-year-old male patient with longstanding right-sided hip pain. The pelvic X-ray demonstrates full-thickness cartilage loss, with periarticular bone spurs and deformity of the femoral head. Post-operative image shows the patient has now undergone a right total hip replacement through a direct anterior approach, with anatomic component positioning and restoration of his native hip length and offset.
Pre-operative image of a 78-year-old female patient with longstanding left-sided knee pain and a valgus (knock-knee) deformity. The knee x-ray demonstrates tricompartmental osteoarthritis with progressive cartilage loss that is most severe in the lateral compartment. In the post-operative image, the patient has now undergone a left total knee replacement. The new knee prosthesis restores the knee back to normal mechanical alignment and is well-balanced in flexion and extension using a gap-balancing technique.
Pre-operative image of a 65-year-old male patient with progressively worsening right-sided knee pain that is localized to the inner aspect of the right knee. The knee X-ray demonstrates a focal area of osteonecrosis with full-thickness cartilage loss in the medial femoral condyle. The remainder of the knee is unaffected. The post-operative image shows the patient has now undergone a right unicompartmental knee replacement. The new partial knee implant resurfaces the damaged medial compartment while leaving the patient’s normal lateral and patellofemoral compartments intact.
