Dr. Ameglio was invited to share at Shell Point Retirement Community at their Monthly Medical Learning Session about SuperPATH total hip replacement.
He is the first and most experienced SuperPATH hip surgeon in SW Florida. With this approach, the hip is never dislocated from the joint and there is no cutting of critical muscles and tendons. This surgery is not easier for the surgeon, but allows a faster recovery for the patient.
The doctor was also able to share about SI joint dysfunction and how the symptoms can sometimes overlap and mimic those of hip arthritis. With his training and expertise, he is able to properly diagnose and at times keep patients from undergoing unnecessary surgery.
