TREATMENT TAILORED TO YOUR NEEDS

OUR SURGERY TECHNIQUE LEADS TO A ‘FORGOTTEN HIP’ IN 80% OF THE PATIENTS AFTER 6 TO 9 MONTHS

EFFICIENT DIRECT ANTERIOR (EDA) HIP PROSTHESIS SURGERY

The muscle-sparing anterior approach to hip replacement surgery is also known as the Direct Anterior Approach. This technique is increasingly used, but the method of implementation of this technique can differ widely.

Within his doctoral research , Professor Corten has carried out extensive research into optimising the detachment of the hip capsule, so that the prosthesis components can be perfectly positioned. He has thereby demonstrated that this crucial step enables a smooth and safe procedure.

After defending his thesis in 2014, Prof. Dr. Corten optimised the muscle-sparing hip prosthesis procedure even further by developing a new, standardised concept to ensure that surgery is carried out as smoothly as possible, and to minimise the impact for the patient: the Efficient SurgerY (ESY)concept.

The Efficient Direct Anterior (EDA) Hip was developed by applying this concept to the anterior approach. This surgical technique uses specific instruments, such as the Gripper and the EsySuit , which enable the surgery time and muscle damage to be limited, and rehabilitation to be accelerated. Every year, Prof. Dr. Corten provides training to many surgeons from all over the world, to ensure that they can use this technique in their OR. Dr. Sarac enjoyed a 2-year training course with Prof. Corten, and carries out the EDA Hip technique in exactly the same way as Prof. Corten. Both doctors work as a team, both in the consultation room and in the operating theatre.

In addition, we use new loco-regional anaesthesia techniques during the procedure. The patient is given anaesthetics that are specifically tailored to hip surgery. The traditional full anaesthesia, which can lead to unpleasant side effects, is therefore no longer necessary for this operation. In addition, we ensure that you will not experience any awareness of the procedure during the short operation. You can quietly listen to music while the team takes care of you.

As a result, patients can already take their first steps very soon after the operation. 80% of the patients have a problem-free rehabilitation afterwards, and can speak of a ‘forgotten hip’ after 6 to 9 months. Professor Corten and his team continue to perfect the procedure. In March 2020, they even won an award at the British Hip Society meeting in Wales for their research into the most optimal, muscle-sparing surgical technique.

Professor Corten and his team perform the EDA Hip operations with the same high standard of care in locations both in Belgium and abroad.

ONE-NIGHT HIP

Thanks to our approach, you can leave the hospital within 24 hours

Our multi-disciplinary approach ensures that you are optimally prepared, so that you can already leave the hospital 24 hours after an EDA Hip procedure. Our SmartHip application supports you further at home, with the possibility of contacting the team 24/7.

ESY CONCEPT

Standardisation reduces the chance of complications

The standardisation of each step of the procedure and the use of specially developed instruments reduces the risk of complications and muscle damage.

P

GRIPPER

Minimal tissue damage during EDA surgery

This invention of Prof. Dr. Corten gives the surgeon a perfect view of the operating area, causes less stress during the operation, and results in no tissue damage to the patient. This significantly reduces the risk of complications.

P

ANAESTHESIA

Smaller anaesthetic risk and promotion of recovery

In combination with the EDA procedure, this high-quality loco-regional anaesthesia, which was developed together with our colleagues in the anaesthesia department, provides maximum pain relief with minimal anaesthetic risk and a quick recovery.
