SMC Anatomy Students Interact With Surgeon During Live Telesurgery
Students taking Biology Professor Gregory Smith’s Human Anatomy course gathered around a TV in Brosseau Hall on Thursday, May 2, to participate in a unique first at Saint Mary’s - interacting with a surgeon while watching a live telesurgery of a hip replacement. From first cut to last, students identified anatomy and asked questions of Stefan Kreuzer, MD, from Advanced Center for Orthopedics in Houston.

4th Annual Anterior Hip Course, September 24-26, 2015
I would like to invite you to join us in Houston for the 4th Annual Anterior Hip Course, September 24-26, 2015.
If you’re already using the direct anterior approach for total hip arthroplasty and want to hone your skills, this course is for you.
Direct approach to hip replacement
Jill Porter is a lifelong athlete who pounds the pavement on courts and fields across a variety of sports.
So when her left hip started hurting, she hoped it was something that rehabilitation and anti-inflammatories would take care of.

New technology eliminates guesswork in knee surgeries
Operating with a computer-assisted visualization guide consisting of one high-def TV for Dr. Stefan Kreuzer and another for an associate who keeps watch over the software, a robotic arm gently directs the surgeon’s hand as he chisels an ever-so-precise chunk from the tip of a patient’s arthritis-damaged femur. Should Kreuzer wander off course the least little bit, the computer squawks irritably, then locks him down cold.
New operating table improves hip replacement surgery
Using a device that looks more like a torture rack than a surgical table, surgeons are now able to replace a hip through the front of the pelvis, limiting tissue and muscle damage and leading to faster recovery.
Hip replacements heal faster with new approach
Recovery times cut in half
As people live longer, more active lives, hip replacement surgery is becoming more and more common. Thanks to innovative technology, surgeons are getting people back on their feet doing what they love, faster.
Pat Groves has been a runner for more than 20 years. But the past 10 haven’t been easy.
