Our hospital is one of the few in the country that is equipped with the Hana orthopedic surgery table, which is designed exclusively for hip and knee arthroplasty. This state of the art orthopedic table allows surgeons to perform a wide range of orthopedic procedures, including the anterior approach necessary for total hip replacement.

The Hana orthopedic surgery table provides a unique capability to position the leg so as the surgeon is able to replace the hip through a tiny single incision and without detaching the muscles from the pelvis or the femur. Furthermore, it allows hyperextension and abduction, as well as external rotation of the legs for femoral component placement, a positioning that is not possible with conventional surgery tables. Thereby, by virtue of the Hana orthopedic surgery table, you can undergo minimally invasive total joint replacement surgery. The benefits of this treatment approach include:

  • a shorter recovery time
  • lower risk of infection
  • reduced pain and discomfort
  • minimal scarring
  • decreased blood loss
  • tiny incisions

With the aid of the Hana orthopedic surgery table, out talented surgeons can perform femur fractures corrections, tibia fractures corrections, hip pinnings, hip scopes and total knee arthroplasties. If you struggle with one of these health problems, we encourage you to undergo minimally invasive surgery at Cedars-Sinai Marina del Rey Hospital, which implies a minimal postoperative risk of complications.
