Advanced Hip Replacement Surgical Techniques to Revitalize Your Life

Dr. Conlan has extensive experience using the Direct Anterior approach for Total Hip Replacements. He has always championed minimally invasive surgical techniques to perform Total Hip Replacements.

Dr. Conlan now performs Total Hip Replacement procedures outside the hospital at an Ambulatory Surgical Center, the Ohio Specialty Surgical Suites, OS3. He has a proven track record of successful results and satisfied patients.

Ambulatory Total Hip Replacement is now done in a few ambulatory centers throughout Ohio. Having the procedure performed in this environment allows the patient to safely start the recovery process several hours after the procedure is completed in the comfort of their home. “This procedure is commonplace in our practice, being done since 2015 at OS3.” Not everyone, however, is a candidate. Newer techniques around the time of surgery have made this more available to patients with chronic medical problems that are felt optimized.

Fellowship trained in adult reconstructive surgery, Dr. Tim Conlan is one of Canton, Ohio’s leading experts for hip replacement. He offers personalized surgical solutions to regain your function and mobility with the least amount of downtime.

Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty, is performed when arthritis within the hip joint has become so severe that the bones are rubbing together, causing pain and loss of mobility. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. The ball is the head of the femur or top part of the thighbone, and the socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone.

Both parts of the hip joint are covered by articular cartilage, which helps the bones glide freely. When the cartilage begins to degenerate, the bones start rubbing together. Surgery becomes a treatment option only after more conservative treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, and cortisone injections no longer provide pain relief.

Hip replacement involves removing the damaged portion of the hip and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement.

In a total hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced, including the ball and the socket. When performing hip replacements, Dr. Conlan uses the direct anterior approach and VERILAST materials to create the strongest joint replacement possible.

VERILAST Hip Replacement Implants

Traditional hip implants typically last 10 to 15 years before they begin to wear down. But VERILAST hip technology lasts up to 9 times longer than the industry standard. With its low-friction Oxinium coating, VERILAST substantially reduces implant wear and the risk of fracture or chipping.
