Hip Replacement

If you need a hip replacement, there’s no reason to prolong your pain. Surgical Solutions Network offers private hip replacement surgery for people from Toronto, Ontario; Calgary, Alberta; Vancouver, British Columbia; Winnipeg, Manitoba; throughout Canada; and international patients. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons are available to perform hip replacement surgery right away, so you don’t have to wait to get the treatment you need. They use the minimally invasive direct anterior (DA) approach that involves accessing the hip joint from the front of the hip. The DA technique allows surgeons to access the hip between the muscles, resulting in a less invasive procedure, quicker recovery, and less post-op pain compared to traditional hip replacement methods.

Get Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery With Surgical Solutions Network

Our orthopedic surgeons at our private medical clinics in Toronto and Calgary have years of experience performing DA hip replacement surgery. We are committed to helping you regain full motion in your hip so you can return to your daily activities. We work with you to prepare for your hip surgery and return home.

We utilize the latest technology, Intellijoint HIP, for hip replacement in Canada. Intellijoint HIP is a surgeon-controlled navigation tool for hip replacement. It provides real-time, intraoperative measurements for fast, easy, and accurate implant alignment for cup position, leg length, and offset.

This treatment requires an overnight stay at our Toronto surgical centre or Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary, our accredited private hospitals specializing in orthopedic surgery. After your hip replacement surgery, our team of nurses from Specialty Nursing and Physiotherapy will care for you and prep you for discharge to return home. Our patient-centred protocols provide each individual with the tools they need to recover successfully. Our expert healthcare staff and surgeons will help you get the surgery you need so you can get back to living a healthy, active life.

Cutting Edge Technology

The HANA® Table

At our Toronto and Calgary orthopedic surgery centres, we use the HANA table, a specially designed surgical table that allows for manipulation of the hip during the procedure. The HANA table allows our surgeons to perform DA hip replacement surgery safely and more effectively than the traditional approach.

Intellijoint’s 3D Mini-Optical Navigation System

Surgical Solutions Network’s Toronto and Calgary orthopedic surgical centres also use Intellijoint’s 3D mini-optical navigation system during the surgery. This tool enables our surgeons to ensure proper positioning and equalization of leg length during total hip arthroplasty surgery, allowing for better outcomes and quicker recovery.

What Does DA Hip Replacement Surgery treat?

If you have been told you need a hip replacement due to worn or damaged hip joints, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis, you are a good candidate for private DA hip replacement surgery at Surgical Solutions Network’s Toronto Surgical Centre or Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary. If you are under age 60 and very active or have a physically demanding occupation, you might be a candidate for the bone-preserving hip resurfacing procedure at Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary.

Preparing For and Recovery After DA Hip Replacement Surgery

It is important to remember that DA hip replacement is major surgery. We work with you pre- and post-op to ensure you have the local support in place you need. Most patients arrive in Toronto or Calgary the day before surgery and return home 2 to 3 days after surgery. You will stay overnight in the hospital after surgery.

Our team of doctors and nurses will work with you to ensure you have a safe and quick recovery, but setbacks and complications can happen and you should expect post-operative pain and swelling. Everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic, but in our experience, the DA total hip replacement approach allows for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible.

How Soon Can You Go Back to Work After DA Hip Replacement Surgery?

Recovery time varies with what you do and any accommodations that can be made (ability to sit/stand when required) for you at work and at home. Most importantly, it depends on you – your expectations, drive, and recovery are all variable. Most “desk” type jobs can be resumed around 1 month post-op, sooner in some cases. Most physical jobs will need a longer recovery, typically 3 to 4 months.

Hip Replacement FAQ

What is this procedure for and how will it alleviate my symptoms?

Most patients who are suitable for a total hip replacement have been told they have worn or damaged hip joints, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. Pain is the most common complaint, and patients find this “bone pain” is gone immediately following surgery. We utilize the Direct Anterior Approach, which is less invasive and offers a quicker initial recovery and resumption of daily activities.

What happens during surgery?

Our surgeons often use Zimmer Biomet implants. With pre-surgical X-rays, they are able to size your joint and provide you with the components that best replicate your natural hip. We utilize the latest intraoperative surgical navigation technology. Intellijoint HIP is a surgeon-controlled tool that provides real-time, intraoperative measurements for fast, easy, and accurate implant alignment of cup position, leg length, and offset.

How do I qualify for this procedure?

You will need to complete a pre-surgical patient questionnaire to provide us with your basic medical history. We also require your most recent X-rays and, should these confirm you are a suitable patient for the procedure and our facility, we will request a medical history and physical, along with bloodwork and ECG from your family doctor.

What is the average process like and how long will it take for me to return to my normal activities?

Upon receipt of the patient’s medical documentation, booking the surgeon consultation can be arranged within 1 week, and surgery scheduled within 2 to 4 weeks. Recovery time varies by patient but you will be up and walking the day of your surgery. Most patients are typically back to their daily activities within 2 to 4 months and specialty sports or lifestyle within 6 months.

How should I prepare for my surgery?

In preparation for your surgery, you will be encouraged to keep moving as much as possible. Pre-hab physio is sometimes helpful in this regard. Our patient advisor will provide you with a patient information booklet outlining pre-surgical exercises for you to undertake to prepare you for the best possible outcome following your surgery.
