As surgeons seek to reduce patients’ recovery time, advanced surgical techniques, including the anterior approach hip replacement, are gaining in popularity. In the symposium session, Optimizing the Anterior Approach with a Proven Algorithm, taking place on May 30th at 13:00 CET, orthopedic leaders bring a global perspective on the anterior approach and how the Hana® Table is a valuable tool in the success of this procedure.
