Dr Paul Atkenson, M. D. "Superpath hip replacement is a cutting edge procedure that by virtue of its tissue sparing nature results in far less post operative pain, far more rapid recovery and no postoperative restrictions. Unlike other minimally invasive surgical approaches, Superpath does not restrict implant choice or compromise surgical exposure. It avoids unnatural twisting or strained positions and preserves the hip joint capsule dramatically lessening the chance of post operative complications such as dislocation or venous thrombosis. Working with my brother Dr. Robert Atkenson, a board certified orthopedic surgeon gives us a distinct advantage over other orthopedic practices. Our patients are on their feet wlaking within 3-4 hours following surgery and discharged from the hospital the same day or within 24 hours."
