Dr. Sciortino's Care Philosophy

As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I see patients with the full range of bone and joint problems, but I am particularly interested in treatment of hip and knee osteoarthritis and shoulder problems, including rotator cuff repair, shoulder replacement, and reverse shoulder replacement. I do hip and knee replacement surgeries, including unicompartmental knee replacement if that is indicated. For total hip replacements, I use the Superpath technique, which eliminates the need for post-THR precautions and allows for faster recovery times.

i Had Super Path Hip Replacement at 7:30 am on May 31, 2017. I left the hospital the next day on June 1, 2017 walking on a walker. June 3, walked with a cane and resumed my daily bike rides. June 6, I quit using a cane and drove my car. Bottom line, I've had little to no pain and my activity level increases with each passing day. I thank God that Dr. Sciortino chose to go to the effort and expense of obtaining the training for SP to help his patients. The results are truly remarkable.

I was extremely pleased with the entire hip replacement experience.

Dr. Sciortino did a total hip replacement on me using the superpath technique on 12/16/15. The next day I was walking around Schnucks with my walker feeling no pain. In two days I was using a cain; and by Christmas, I was walking without the cain. People can't believe the quick and painless re-hab. The office, the hospital, and the doctor were great.

Dr. Sciortino says...

I am one of very few physicians in the Midwest who uses the SUPERPATH® Hip Replacement surgery procedure.  The surgical technique for a SUPERPATH® Hip Replacement was developed as an advancement to traditional total hip replacement. The SUPERPATH® technique is a tissue-sparing procedure which aims to get patients back on their feet within days (possibly hours) instead of weeks or months. A number of patients who have undergone this procedure are able to walk unassisted the day after surgery, and leave the hospital without the typical restrictions (such as crossing their legs) associated with total hip replacement.SUPERPATH® hip replacement is a differentiated total hip technique being performed by a growing number of experienced surgeons.With SUPERPATH®, there is no surgical dislocation of the hip. Patients can also have as little as a 3-inch incision. It is important to understand that "less invasive" does not only refer to the incision but also means less trauma to the muscles and tendons under the skin. A SUPERPATH® Hip Replacement is designed to precisely reconstruct the hip without cutting critical tendons and stretching or traumatizing muscles that are important to hip function.Because of the elimination of damage to these important structures during reconstruction, patients typically have a short hospital stay and a number of patients walk the same day as their surgery.
