Hip Arthroscopies Move To ASCs
Did you know someone going in for hip surgery can be released the same day? Personally, I was very impressed when I heard about hip arthrosocpies being done in outpatient surgery centers, and I think it is amazing you can undergo hip surgery with a 23 hour stay.
As more hip arthroscopies were being done in outpatient surgery centers, our customers started to ask us about manufacturing the disposable soft goods to help save them money. We listened.
The anterior approach to hip arthroscopies if often performed on the Smith and Nephew Hip Distraction Table and this is the table we manufactured single use products for first. Anterior hip arthroscopies remove debris, scar tissue or other irritations associated with the hip joint that cause pain and discomfort. Not to be confused with a total hip replacement done in a hospital. For anterior approach, the patient lays supine and can be released after a 23 hour stay because it is a less invasive procedure than the lateral approach (where the patient is positioned on their side).
Our two newest products, the Carson Perineal Post Pad and the Patient Care Boot Insert, fit onto the Smith and Nephew Hip Distraction Table and offer our customers some needed cost savings during these procedures. The Carson sits between the thighs to pad the patient while the surgeon moves their legs during surgery and the feet are held in boots lined with our Patient Care Boot Inserts to protect against abrasions.
Another popular surgical table that allows for hip arthroscopies to be done in an outpatient setting is the OSI Hana Table. We are currently working to create an American-made version of the OSI disposable kit. If you would like to be contacted when samples are available please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
