(PALM SPRINGS) — Dr. Douglas J. Roger of Desert Regional Medical Center hosted prominent Beverly Hills physicianJason Snibbe in his operating room this month at Desert Regional Medical Center to observe the Direct Superior Approach.
The Direct Superior Approach minimally invasive joint replacement surgery developed by Dr. Roger has rocketed to one of the nation’s most successful hip procedures.
Dr. Snibbe is the president of the Los Angeles-based Snibbe Institute, and himself one of the most prominent hip surgeons in the country. Dr. Snibbe, after learning of the Direct Superior Approach, asked to observe Dr. Roger’s technique.
Dr. Roger, who even designed and patented the tools necessary to perform the rapid-recovery technique, continues to host hip-replacement surgeons from around the nation.
The Direct Superior Approach has less blood less, less post-operative pain, and faster recovery times compared to any other traditional hip-replacement procedures.
A pioneer of Direct Superior Approach minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Roger is a nationally renowned joint replacement industry leader, in addition to serving as Director of Joint Replacements at Desert Regional Medical Center.
