Hip replacement surgery makes great strides with new OR table
April 04, 2013
Recovery from hip replacement surgery has become much faster in southern Oregon thanks to a new operating table at Providence Medford Medical Center Hospital.
The table can move to just about any angle making it easier for the surgeon to operate on the patient and for the patient to recover from the procedure.
“The main advantage of this approach is faster rehab. Patients are able to get back to their lives much, much sooner. They won’t require using an assisted device, like crutches or a walker, for more than a few weeks at the most,” says orthopedic surgeon Omar Hadi.
