Dr. Matthew Grunkemeyer is using a new surgical table called the Pivot Guardian Distraction System. This surgical table is designed to minimize complications patients may experience after hip arthroscopy and improve the surgeon’s ability to access the injured hip. He says, “This table will improve patient safety and the patient experience. It resembles an exercise machine to hold and position the patient to assist surgeons during hip arthroscopy.”
“Advancements in hip surgery are allowing us to preserve a patient’s native hip longer. As technology advances, patients expect a solution that gets them back on their feet quicker. This table will help minimize the risk of complications and allows the surgeons to get a better view of the hip to make the necessary repairs,” said Dr. Grunkemeyer.
