Bio total Hip will dramaticallyimprove yesterdays surgical procedures
INNOVATION AND THE TECHNOLOGYPATENT GB 2344290: An innovative Surgical device for repairing and replacing joints with the capability of reaching joints via the femur neck. This minimises the need to perform Arthroplasty or Total Hip Prosthesis surgery as reshapes and resurfaces bone and hip joints.The ‘Bio Total Hip’ makes it possible to perform arthroscopy without damaging articular capsules by introducing mechanical and biological materials between joints. A less-invasive surgical treatment will improve joint movements which will make major surgery redundant. This will be beneficial to patients suffering early stages of Arthrosis or other damaged joints. The Bio Total Hip has a tremendous advantage via the ability to stop the removal of the neck and head of the femur during different stages of treatment of articular cartilage damage. This is possible by reshaping and resurfacing damaged surfaces, whilst keeping the capsule and its corresponding blood supply intact. Using visual devices and Bio-compatible materials to resurface damaged joints, the need for total hip replacement surgery will be greatly reduced.This procedure creates a new surface which minimises friction and facilitates smooth gliding between joint surfaces as in healthy joints by flushing joints to remove foreign bodies, then repair soft structure damage and reshape the area using Bio materials.The adjustable telescopic member with a profiled head is inserted through a minuscule tunnel drilled through the femur neck and articular space delivering Bio materials/Stem cells to damaged articular cartilage areas and also allow the joint to be analysed in order to ascertain if any further repair is needed.Another innovative feature of the Bio Total Hip is the inflatable bladder attached to a telescopic member which compresses Bio materials as it resurfaces joints. An umbrella-like mechanism covers the head of the femur and a biological prosthesis is created.This adjustable telescopic mechanism with a profiled head sits proud in the joint, creating an artificial space allowing the free movement of arthritic joints. This can be used for the osteo-synthesis of a femur neck that’s fractured. When the treatment is carried out, the outer part of the device will remain within the socket which is very practical if access to the joint is needed again. This in turn will allow patients to be mobile through and very soon after surgery.

Bio Total Hip has the potential to be at the forefront of Arthrosis treatment by treating the onset of arthritic problems. Bio Total Hip will halt a worldwide chronic, debilitating disease and its symptoms of association. The use of Bio materials via minimal invasive surgery will reduce surgical and hospital costs, greatly decrease recovery time and minimise the amount of drugs patients need until they reach an ‘appropriate age’ to be granted Hip replacement Surgery.
