University of California, San Diego Health System is one of only a few hospitals in the nation to offer computer-assisted navigation technology with the direct anterior hip replacement technique, potentially resulting in less pain, faster recovery and fewer dislocations for patients with osteoarthritis and other forms of degenerative joint disease.

Any advance in the technology of hip replacement is always very welcome to patients. This can make the lives of people suffering from arthritis more manageable and the earlier they can return to a semblance of normalcy in their lives will always be appreciated. It would also help if new techniques are developed that would make it easier for those who suffered due to hip replacement failure such as the Depu ASR hip systems.

This new method of hip replacement will truly bring comfort to those living in despair because of their condition. A new beginning is within their reach. I just hope that this will not bring complications to its patients like what happened to traditional hip replacements. It is not easy having to live life with a faulty hip implant. Read more here

I sure hope this doesn't backfire in the years to come. After all, the hip replacement devices that have been associated with complications, such as metal-on-metal hip devices listed in , were previously thought to be "better" than traditional hip implants made of plastic and ceramic. But look what happened now? Hip replacement recall, left and right!
