Porter Regional Hospital was the first hospital in the region to offer minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using the specially designed OSI Pro-FX Surgical Table.
Patients with hip pain have new options, thanks to Michael Leland, MD, orthopedic surgeon with Lakeshore Bone & Joint Institute. Leland has perfected a revolutionary technique in which the total hip is replaced through a single incision at the front - or anterior - of the hip.
The unique surgery spares muscle tissue, reduces post-operative pain and shortens recovery time. With this procedure, patients are able to begin walking immediately after surgery. They overwhelmingly experience less pain and are able to forgo narcotics following surgery. The surgery is possible using the special OSI Surgical Table, available exclusively at Porter in Northwest Indiana.
