Product Overview

-First used in 2004, PATH® (Percutaneously Assisted
Total Hip) is called the “Direct Posterior Approach”
because it spares key muscles, tendons and soft tissue
to optimize THA outcomes and allow for faster patient
recovery than traditional approaches. By utilizing
familiar patient positioning and anatomic landmarks,
potential complications often found in other less
invasive approaches are reduced. Portal assisted
acetabular positioning allows the surgeon to achieve
consistent and accurate cup placement with minimal
soft tissue disruption without the need for
navigational tools.1
