FAQs from recent seminars

Posted April 13th, 2011 by admin and filed in Hip Pain, Hip Replacement

While patient visits are the best time to ask questions about orthopaedic care, my staff and I are available to answer questions by phone, at seminars or here on my blog.  www.topbonedoc.com.

In fact, here are some of the top frequently asked questions that I get – and some answers:

Q: Following a recent seminar, I was asked, “Is the anterior approach to hip replacement right for everyone?

A: The answer is that while 70-80 percent of patients considering hip replacement ARE candidates, the anterior approach to hip replacement is not for everyone. Patients who are extremely obese or have other health risks may not be a candidate.  A consultation with a board certified orthopaedic surgeon is recommended to help you determine your options.

Q: Another question that I was asked about the anterior approach to hip replacement is “If it’s so great, why aren’t all orthopaedic surgeons offering it?”

A: The answer to this is that the procedure is more difficult and requires additional time and patience to master the approach. While the anterior approach is gaining interest from both patients and surgeons, the traditional approach to hip replacement is more commonly taught and practiced. When considering hip replacement options, ask your surgeon about the various options, benefits and outcomes. Together, you and your surgeon can determine the best course of treatment for you.

If you have questions about the anterior approach to hip replacement, post them here. For more information visit http://bone-fix.com/surgeons/curcione.php.

Free seminar March 28 to highlight new implant for hip pain

Posted March 16th, 2011 by admin and filed in Events

Dr. Curcione head shot1 Free seminar March 28 to highlight new implant for hip painOrthopaedic surgeon Dr. Peter Curcione will host a free educational seminar to provide information and answer questions about new treatment options for hip pain including the anterior approach to hip replacement on Monday, March 28 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. at Gulf Coast Medical Center, 13681 Doctors Way in Fort Myers. In addition to addressing the causes of hip pain and the various surgical and non-surgical options for treating hip pain, Dr. Curcione will share information on a new hip implant designed to offer patients increased stability and range of motion by mimicking the patient’s natural anatomy.  For reservations, call 239-368-8277, ext. 2302. Refreshments will be served. Space is limited.

Utilizing new implant technologies, Curcione offers the direct anterior approach to hip replacement, a less invasive procedure. While traditional hip replacement involves operating from the side or back of the hip, the direct anterior approach requires a smaller incision, about three to four inches long at the front or anterior of the hip. The anterior approach procedure to total hip replacement has been gaining popularity due to its potential benefits including reduced scarring and minimized risk of muscle damage.

“I am always reviewing new implant technology that will benefit my patients,” says Curcione. “Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip is an exciting advancement designed to help decrease the risk of dislocation without metal-on-metal articulation and to potentially reduce implant wear, dislocation, and groin pain. These are significant benefits for physicians and our patients.”

The ins and outs of hip implants

Posted March 11th, 2011 by admin and filed in Hip Implants

Recent recalls by manufacturers of metal-on-metal hip implants has more patients asking about the types of products available, materials used and the potential advantages and drawbacks.

Among the various types of implants used in hip replacement are ceramic-on-ceramic, ceramic-on-plastic and plastic-on-metal hip implants. Metal-on-metal implants, the focus of recent implant manufacturer recalls, are no longer used by most surgeons, including out team.

Typically used to treat osteoarthritis of the joint, hip implants surgically replace the joints with the goal of ensuring that the bearing surface, the point where the moving parts – the ball and the cup – meet, lasts for many years.

The durability of the replaced hip depends upon several factors, including patient weight and activity level, as well as the implant’s bearing surface technology.

A new and exciting option for hip replacement patients is Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip designed to offers increased stability and range of motion by mimicking the patient’s natural anatomy. 

I am always reviewing new implant technology that will benefit my patients and Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip is an exciting advancement and allows me to help decrease the risk of dislocation without metal on-metal articulation. The system addresses implant wear, dislocation, and groin pain, a big benefit for my patients.

Major League Baseball Hall of Fame legend Johnny Bench joins me Feb. 4 at a free hip replacement seminar

Johnny Bench Photo1 150x150 Major League Baseball Hall of Fame legend Johnny Bench joins me Feb. 4 at a free hip replacement seminarMajor League Baseball Hall of Fame legend Johnny Bench will join me at a free seminar to educate people on the benefits of joint replacement. The public is invited to hear Bench share his personal experience with hip replacement on Feb. 4 at noon at the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center, 2301 First St. in Fort Myers. In addition, I’ll provide more details on the very latest advances in treating joint pain, including the anterior approach to hip replacement. 

Bench underwent total hip replacement of his right hip in April of 2004 after suffering for years from chronic joint pain. When he began experiencing pain in his left hip, Bench knew not to wait until he was sidelined by the pain before seeking help. He elected to undergo total hip replacement of his left hip in February 2010. Bench was the first patient to receive Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip which I am now using on patients.

Bench is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in Major League Baseball history. He was a key member of the Reds’ 1975 and 1976 World Series championship team known as “The Big Red Machine.” Bench was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989.

It will be an honor to team up with Johnny Bench on Friday. To attend our free seminar, please call 1-888-STRYKER (1-888-787-9537) or go online to: https://secure.aboutstryker.com/seminars/. Pre-registration is requested for the event.

New implant offers patients better stability, mobility and implant longevity

Resized Stryker ADMX3 Mobile Bearing Hip New implant offers patients better stability, mobility and implant longevity   I’m always looking at new technology that will benefit my patients. I’m pleased to offer a new hip implant that appears to offer better stability and mobility. Stryker’s Mobile Bearing Hip system is designed to offer patients increased stability and range of motion by mimicking the patient’s natural anatomy.  Clinical studies show that larger diameter heads (the ball-shaped part of the hip at the top of the thighbone or femur) reduce the rate of dislocation.

The new implant is an exciting advancement designed to help decrease the risk of dislocation without metal-on-metal articulation and to potentially reduce implant wear, dislocation, and groin pain. These are significant benefits for physicians and our patients.

Utilizing new implant technologies such as the Stryker Mobile Bearing Hip, I offer the direct anterior approach to hip replacement, a less invasive procedure. While traditional hip replacement involves operating from the side or back of the hip, the direct anterior approach requires a smaller incision, about three to four inches long at the front or anterior of the hip. The anterior approach procedure to total hip replacement has been gaining popularity due to its potential benefits including reduced scarring and minimized risk of muscle damage.
