3What’s causing your pain? It’s estimated 70 million people in the U.S. have some form of arthritis.1 Osteoarthritis is one of the most common types.OsteoarthritisWear and tear that deteriorates the “cushion” in your jointsA degenerative condition—it won’t get better and may get worseRheumatoid arthritisAn autoimmune disease that attacks the lining of joints, causing swelling and possibly throbbing and deformity1.

4What’s causing your pain? Healthy hipThe end of each bone in the joint is covered with cartilage, acting as a cushion so the joint functions without painDiseased hip (osteoarthritis)Wear and tear deteriorates natural cushion, leading to bone-on-bone contact, soreness and swelling
5Assessing your pain Do you sometimes limp? Is it difficult to perform daily tasks—like walking, housework or tying shoes?Does pain limit your activities & lifestyle?Does one leg feel “shorter”?Do you have balance problems?Do you experience pain in the thigh, groin or buttocks?Does pain radiate to the knee?
6Excruciating, debilitating pain Assessing your painRate your pain on a scale of 1 to 5For most people, the tipping point is about 4 or 5— that’s when the pain becomes too difficult and they turn to a surgeon for relief1Little or no painExcruciating, debilitating pain2008 DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction Hip Attitudes & Usage Study.

15Important safety information As with any medical treatment, individual results may varyThe performance of joint replacements depends on your age, weight, activity level and other factorsThere are potential risks, and recovery takes timePeople with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgeryOnly an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if hip replacement is right for you
16What other patients have to say In a recent study of 600 people who chose hip replacement:More than 96% said hip replacement enabled them to move freely and without pain.190% said they were able to participate in their favorite activities.1One study has shown that PINNACLE® Hips have a 95.8% success rate 9 years after surgery.2DePuy Hip Pain: A&U/Segmentation. Final Report January Data on file.Multi-center PINNACLE Acetabular Cup System Outcomes Study, Kaplan-Meier survivorship results. Abstract submitted June 1, 2012 for 2013 AAOS Meeting.

21Anterior Approach What is it? Incision is made on the front (anterior) of the leg rather than the side (lateral) or back (posterior)Surgeon can work between muscles and tissues without detaching them from the hip or thigh bonesUses a high-tech table and intra-operative x-ray for precise positioning of implant
22Traditional surgery Patients typically lie on side or front Incision on side or back of legSurgeon detaches muscles, disrupts tissueSurgeon relies on post-operative x-ray to check component placement & leg length
23Anterior Approach Patients lie on back Incision on front of leg No detachment of muscles, minimal disruption of tissueSurgeon can check component placement & leg length during procedurehana® is a trademark of Mizuho OSI.
24Anterior Approach History First performed in 1947 by Robert Judet in FranceSurgery performed on the “Judet” table, with the patient lying on back rather than on sideIn 2002, Dr. Joel Matta of California adopted the technique, helped develop a new table and began to teach the technique in the U.S.Today, more than 350+ DePuy trained U.S. surgeons perform the technique on this table1Data on file at DePuy Synthes Joint ReconstructionDr. Matta is a consultant for DePuy Synthes Joint Reconstruction and receives royalties as the designer of the hana® and PROfx® tables which are manufactured by Mizuho OSI.
25Potential benefits of the Anterior Approach Less trauma to the body1Smaller incision1Potentially less pain1Less tissue disruption, may lead to faster rehabilitation1Fewer restrictions during recovery11.
