  • Phoenix-Mesa, AZ (1888PressRelease) November 16, 2012 - The pilot program for the anticipated medical series is titled, The Latest Procedure: Anterior Total Hip Replacement Surgery. The show kicked off the project by going inside the OR with Arizona's own orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Ted Firestone, with assistance from Dr. Sean Brimacombe, orthopedic surgeon. The program explains step-by-step this innovative approach currently used in approximately 20 percent of hip replacement surgeries nationally. Pioneered by Dr. Joel Matta of Los Angeles, world-renowned pelvic fracture surgeon, the anterior hip replacement technique has meant less pain and fewer post-operative precautions for patients.

    During the hour-long program, viewers get a bird's-eye view of the operation through a mini-cam strapped to the surgeon's head. Viewers get play-by-play accounting of the surgery, meet the patient and walk down the hall with the patient just 3 hours after the surgery.

    Anterior Hip Replacement surgery is one of the least invasive surgical options for hip replacement. The Anterior Approach is a proven technique that minimizes the pain and the time from surgery to recovery. Dr. Sean Brimacombe, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon at Specialty Orthopaedic Surgery counts Anterior Total Hip Replacement as one of the areas of focus within his practice.
