SuperPath® Hip Approach

SuperPath® is a portal assisted THA approach that accesses the capsule superiorly through the interval between the gluteus medius and piriformis without requiring the cutting of any muscles or tendons. The femur is prepared with the head and neck intact reducing the chance of fracture. The acetabulum is prepared under direct visualization and a cannula facilitates the use of inline instrumentation. If necessary, there is an extensile option allowing surgeons to continue the technique from a familiar view without repositioning the patient.
