On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, Dr. Fritz Boettner joins me to discuss hip replacements. Dr. Fritz Boettner is a specialist in joint-preserving arthroscopic surgery and minimally invasive total joint replacements of the knee and hip. His practice concentrates on the nonsurgical and surgical treatment of early arthritis. As part of a patient-centered individual approach, he performs arthroscopic cartilage surgery and joint preserving osteotomies, as well as minimally invasive total joint replacements and resurfacings.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The evolution of hip replacement surgeries

-Pre-surgical considerations for anterior and posterior surgical approaches

-Post-surgical restrictions on movement

-Rehabilitation and pain management considerations following hip replacement

-And so much more!

 

Having the optionality of either surgical approach allows each patient to be evaluated to ensure the best outcomes. Dr. Boettner states, “Having different types of approaches at our availability allows you to select which would be best for the patient.”

 

Pain and functional management following hip replacement surgery is the same for either approach with the goal being that, “Everything is geared towards early discharge.”

 

Dr. Boettner stresses that physical therapy providers be mindful of their interventions and avoid adverse outcomes with unnecessary exertion. He reminds, “If you don’t do anything with the hip, patients will be fine after hip replacement.”

“Minimal invasive surgery reduces surgical trauma, resulting in advantages for early rehabilitation,” he says. ”In addition, patients love their cosmetically appealing incision.”

 

Born in Germany, Dr. Boettner studied at the top international centers for his specialty, completing fellowships in four sub-areas, as well as additional training in pelvic osteotomies and open hip dislocation with surgeons in Germany, Switzerland and the United States. He has authored an orthopedic textbook, as well as numerous scientific publications.
