MicroPort® Orthopedics is a company with a passion for innovation and continuous improvement. The orthopedic space is very dynamic and continues to shift as governments aim to reduce health care spending while improving patient care. The bundled payment programs along with movements towards outpatient total joints will call for new, differentiated product and service solutions.

MicroPort Orthopedics is driven to meet the growing needs of patients, surgeons and payors to better manage a patient’s episode of care with improved outcomes, less rehabilitation requirements, and reduced post-op restrictions.

SuperPath® Tissue Sparing Hip Approach

Some patients walk the same day as their surgery

The SuperPath® Hip Replacement Technique was designed to minimize trauma to soft tissue in the hip. Because of this minimally invasive approach, patients typically have a shorter hospital stay and a number of patients walk the same day as their surgery.1

“The critical benefits for SuperPath that I see are rapid recovery for patients.”

- Dr. Judd Cummings MD, Scottsdale, AZ

Surgeon insight

"We see patients many months after the fact, describing circumstances where their hips are feeling better, feeling more natural, feeling more normal than their maybe contralateral hip that was done in another technique.”
- Dr. Jimmy Chow MD, Phoenix, AZ



The Anterior Path® incision is made in line with Langer’s lines and just below the hip crease, providing a number of benefits6:

  • Improved Wound Cosmesis
  • Improved Wound Healing7
  • Fewer Wound Complications

Surgeon insight

"In terms of Anterior Path®, I think pretty much what we described as far as exposure, incisions, and cosmesis, and recovery are all improved. And you're talking to someone who felt like things couldn't be improved upon. I thought we had all the answers already."

- Dr. Edward Stolarski MD, Sarasota, FL


medial-pivot knee replacement system

Excellent outcomes and lower 30 days readmission rates

Evolution® Medial-Pivot knee achieves higher patient satisfaction than other total knee replacement designs on the market and shows a lower 30 days readmission rate and complications than tradition knee replacements.4,5

“My patients that have had the Evolution Knee seem to get back to a normal degree of function more rapidly.”

- Dr. David Backstein MD, MEd, Toronto, ON

Surgeon insight

“They return back to their function much faster. I think that this is, one, because we've gotten better at pain control, but I also think that it's gotten to the point with the medial pivot, that we're recreating the kinematics of their knee so accurately that it really is almost a resurfacing procedure, as opposed to us actually truly replacing the knee.”

Dr. Joseph Assini MD, Englewood, CO


Every patient is different, and individual results will vary. There are risks and recovery times associated with surgery.
