Minimally Invasive Direct Anterior Total Hip Replacement (THR) - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Your hip consists of two main parts that fit together like a ball and socket-- the femoral head at the top of the leg and the acetabulum in your pelvis. Cartilage between the femoral head and acetabulum provides cushioning between the bones and allows for smooth movement. A total hip replacement is usually done when severe damage from arthritis or injury has made it difficult to perform daily activities without severe pain or restricted range of motion. During the procedure, the femoral head and acetabulum are replaced with artificial components called prostheses. An artificial hip prosthesis consists of a cup, called the acetabulum component, and a stem and a ball, called the femoral component. During a direct anterior total hip replacement procedure, you will lie on your back on a specialized table, enabling your surgeon to perform this minimally invasive operation. Your feet will be placed in boots attached to the table, allowing your surgeon to position your legs as necessary to gain access to your hip joint during your operation. A fluoroscopy machine may be used during the procedure to help your surgeon position your prosthesis more accurately. Your surgeon will begin by making a 3- to 6-inch incision near your groin. This incision is significantly smaller than those made during other total hip replacement procedures. He or she will then push aside two muscles to expose the joint capsule. No muscles are split or detached during this procedure. After incising the joint capsule, your surgeon will dislocate the femoral head from the acetabulum. He or she will remove any damaged cartilage or bone in the acetabulum, reshape the acetabular socket, and secure the acetabular prosthesis in place using special cement or screws. Turning next to the femur, your surgeon will remove the femoral head, shape the remaining femur to fit the prosthetic stem, and secure the femoral component using cement or other techniques. Once both components are firmly in place, your surgeon will slide the prosthetic femoral head into its acetabular counterpart, test the movement of your new hip joint, and may verify that it is properly positioned with an X-ray. Your surgeon will then close the joint capsule and reposition your muscles. He or she may place a drain in your hip to remove excess fluid and close the incision with stitches or staples.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"I wanted to thank you for the terrific job you did illustrating my client's injuries. The case was settled at the pre-suit mediation, and I believe a good part of the success we had was due to the medical legal art you prepared.

Your work received the ultimate compliment at the conclusion of the mediation. The hospital risk manager took the exhibit with them at the conclusion of mediation, and will be using it to train nurses on how to prevent bed sores..."

Steven G. Koeppel

"I have a medical illustration created by Medical Legal Art at the beginning of every case to tell the client's story, usually before I depose the defendant doctor. The work product and cost-efficiency are outstanding. It is a situation where, as a trial lawyer, I don't leave home without it."

Rockne Onstad
Attorney at Law
Austin, TX

"We got a defense verdict yesterday! Your exhibit was extremely helpful in showing the jury how unlikely it is to damage all four of the nerve branches which control the sense of taste."

Karen M. Talbot
Silverman Bernheim & Vogel, P.C.
Philadeplphia, PA

"It is with great enthusiasm that I recommend Medical Legal Art. We have used their services for three years and always found their professionalism, quality of work, and timely attention to detail to exceed our expectations. We recently settled two complicated catastrophic injury cases. One medical malpractice case involving a spinal abscess settled for 3.75 million and the other involving injuries related to a motor vehicle accident settled for 6.9 million. We consider the artwork provided by MLA to have been invaluable in helping us to successfully conclude these cases.

I highly recommend MLA to anyone seeking high quality, detailed medical legal artwork."
