Smart Technology for Hip and Knee Replacement
I'm hosting a free educational seminar to discuss how a new technology, OrthAlign, can improve the way we approach knee and hip replacements. Find out if you are a candidate for knee or anterior hip replacement surgery. Learn more about the immediate and long-term benefits of knee and anterior hip replacement surgery. Get answers to any of your knee and hip-surgery risk-related concerns or questions. Map out your post-surgery recovery timeline. Discover how advances in joint replacement surgery technology, like OrthAlign, can change your life for the better. Independence is your most valuable possession. If you are suffering from knee or hip pain come and learn more about your options. I look forward to seeing you. - Dr. Harinder Dhanota, Fellowship trained and board certified orthopaedic surgeon, www.dhanotaorthopaedics.com What is OrthAlign? OrthAlign is a revolutionary, computer-assisted device clinically proven to make knee and hip surgery more accurate.[1,2] Using advanced sensors based on accelerometers and gyroscopes, OrthAlign employs similar precision technology that keeps satellites in orbit and aircraft straight and level. These micro-sensors use your unique anatomy to act as a GPS for surgeons; helping to guide the surgery by ensuring accuracy and properly aligned implants.  All of this happens in a phone-like device that sits in the surgeon’s hands and on their surgical instruments. What makes OrthAlign a good choice? Greater accuracy and precision of implant placement.[1,2,8] Patient-specific surgery based on your anatomic data. Less blood loss during knee surgery. No pre-operative imaging required. We know that the thought of getting surgery can be scary. Really, we understand. But if you suffer from chronic knee or hip pain, taking this small step can lead to a giant leap in your well-being. Over 90% of patients who undergo total knee or total hip replacement are proven to have significantly less pain, and a much higher quality of life. [4,6] And this big improvement happens faster than you may think. In fact, with physical therapy propelling progression you could be back behind the wheel in weeks and doing light exercise in only a couple months. For most patients it's a simple routine procedure, with nearly 100% of patients suffering no serious side effects at all. [4,7] With OrthAlign, coupled with your surgeon’s expertise, you can enter into surgery confident that you are in good hands. 1.
