This content was provided by Dr. Roger "When I first learned to do hip replacement surgery twenty-five years ago, patients were routinely in the hospital for two weeks or more. The patients had a lot of pain and were on crutches for long periods of time and overall it took a long time to recover. I became interest in developing ways to help patients get better faster after hip replacement surgery. Twenty-five years of research has led to today's minimally invasive approach, the Direct Superior."
