At Colorado Advanced Orthopedics, we’re committed to delivering the finest medical care possible. There are several components to providing the exceptional treatment you deserve. First, we make sure you’re being cared for by the very best doctors. Our board-certified orthopedic surgeons have the extensive training and experience necessary to achieve the best outcomes on complex surgical procedures. They use the latest techniques to ensure your procedure is performed safely while setting you up to regain full function.
While the skill and training of our doctors ensure you’re in good hands, we’re able to further elevate the level of care you receive by utilizing the most advanced technology in the industry. By arming the best orthopedic surgeons on the Western Slope with the best technology, we’re able to employ specialized and minimally invasive surgical techniques that allow for smaller incision sites, less tissue disruption, less discomfort and faster healing.
Our orthopedic surgeons use the Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery System to improve the outcomes of knee replacement procedures. This cutting-edge technology facilitates ideal implant sizing and positioning that can result in a more natural feeling joint following surgery, and a more rapid recovery than traditional knee replacement surgery. This machine allows our surgeons to fully leverage their training to perform knee replacement much more precisely while reducing risks. This ensures you receive the highly precise and personalized surgical experience you deserve.
At Colorado Advanced Orthopedics, we utilize Radlink™ GPS technology to ensure the best outcomes for joint replacement surgeries. The Radlink system allows for direct measurements and increased accuracy of implants, which can reduce blood loss and improve patient recovery. This technology can shorten your surgical time and improve implant positioning so that you can get back to doing what you love sooner.
Radlink GPS technology provides an intraoperative x-ray and delivers detailed measurements based on your unique anatomy. With this technology, our surgeons can make decisions during your procedure to determine the precise implant placement using real-time information provided by the GPS. This mathematical analysis yields greater surgical precision. Radlink’s software analyzes your x-ray and applies algorithms to determine key anatomical landmarks, allowing our surgeons to confidently perform the procedure knowing the measurements are mathematically precise in 3D space.
We use Radlink technology to elevate the outcomes in a variety of joint replacement procedures, including:
The Direct Superior Approach is used by our surgeons in hip replacement surgery to protect muscle and other tissues. In a DSA hip replacement, an incision 3-6 inches long is made at the upper side of the hip. This helps our surgeon avoid cutting – and then needing to reattach – the crucial muscle group that allows you to walk and bend. Avoiding injury or trauma to that group of muscles and ligaments during surgery may potentially result in better hip stability and post-surgical recovery.
In addition to achieving a smaller scar, the DSA procedure increases the likelihood that you may be able to walk on the same day of surgery under doctor supervision.
