Surgical approach linked to risk in hip replacement

The researchers say that the anterior approach to hip arthroplasty is slightly more risky than the posterior or lateral approaches. "The small but statistically significant increase in the risk of major surgical complications associated with the anterior approach may help inform decisions for total hip arthroplasty," write Daniel Pincus, MD, PhD, of the Sunnybrook Health Sciences Center in Toronto, Canada, and his colleagues.

NorthShore neurosurgeon first in Illinois to offer new targeted therapy for brain tumors

NorthShore University HealthSystem (NorthShore) neurosurgeon, Julian Bailes, MD, is the first in Illinois to begin offering GammaTile® Therapy, a new approach to treating malignant brain tumors. The FDA-cleared, Surgically Targeted Radiation Therapy (STaRT) is designed to delay tumor regrowth for patients with high grade gliomas, meningiomas and brain metastases. The first patient in the state was treated by Dr. Bailes who is chairman of the department of neurosurgery and co-director of the NorthShore Neurological Institute. Neuro-oncologist Ryan Merrell, MD, will also be participating in this new surgical therapy at NorthShore.
