Dr. Daniel Chan is one of the leaders for hip replacement in South Florida especially for outpatient surgery in an ambulatory surgical center. He utilizes the latest techniques including the muscle-sparing, minimally-invasive direct anterior approach with the specialized Hana orthopaedic table. He also utilizes advanced technologies including intra-operative live x-rays and Velys hip navigation to ensure accurate implant positioning and leg length restoration. As an orthopaedic trauma specialist, Dr. Chan also is an expert in complex hip fracture reconstruction and also performs revision (re-do) hip replacement surgery where patients have had failed prior hip replacements. Please see below for additional information on relevant hip conditions and procedures.

Osteoarthritis of the Hip

Osteoarthritis of the Hip

Osteoarthritis, also called degenerative joint disease, is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs most often in the elderly. This disease affects the tissue covering the ends of bones in a joint called cartilage

Inflammatory Arthritis of the Hip

Hip Dislocation

Hip Dislocation

Hip dislocation occurs when the head of the femur moves out of the socket. The femoral head can dislocate either backward (posterior dislocation) or forward (anterior dislocation).

Hip Fracture

Hip Fracture

Hip fracture is most frequently caused after minor trauma in elderly patients with weak bones, and by high-energy trauma or serious injuries in the young. The long-term use of certain medicines increases your risk for hip fractures.

Stress Fractures of the Hip

Stress Fractures of the Hip

Stress fractures of the hip are a break in the upper part of the thigh bone (femur) that fits into the socket of the hip joint. It can occur in any part of the hip, however, it mostly occurs just below the ball of the ball-and-socket hip joint called the femoral neck.

Avascular Necrosis

Avascular Necrosis

A pelvic fracture is a condition that occurs due to the breakage of the pelvic bone. It may cause damage to the internal organs, nerves and blood vessels associated with the pelvic region.

Periprosthetic Hip Fractures

Periprosthetic Hip Fractures

Periprosthetic hip fractures are usually treated surgically, under general or regional anesthesia.

Acetabular Fracture

Acetabular Fracture

An acetabular fracture is a break in the acetabulum (ball-and-socket portion) of the hip joint. It usually occurs during high-energy injuries.

Femur Fracture

Femur Fracture

The femur or thigh bone is the longest and strongest bone in the body, connecting the hip to the knee. A femur fracture is a break in the femur

Femoral Neck Fracture

Femoral Neck Fracture

Fractures to the femoral neck can completely or partially disconnect the femoral head from the rest of the femur.r

Pelvic Fractures

Pelvic Fractures

A pelvic fracture is a condition that occurs due to the breakage of the pelvic bone. It may cause damage to the internal organs, nerves and blood vessels associated with the pelvic region.

Femoral Shaft Fracture

Femoral Shaft Fracture

Fractures to the femoral neck can completely or partially disconnect the femoral head from the rest of the femur.

Subtrochanteric Hip Fracture

Subtrochanteric Hip Fracture

A subtrochanteric fracture can be corrected and aligned with nonoperative and operative methods. Traction may be an option to treat your condition if you are not fit for surgery.
