Hip Hip HOORAY!
We have re-entered the operating room and are back to hip surgery! Call TODAY for a consultation within a week!
Telehealth: The majority of our patients travel to Nashville from out of state. We can arrange to do your initial consultation by “Telehealth” or “Telemedicine”. Call Valerie at 615-406-0095 to send your imaging studies and previous medical records for review before your appointment.
Destination Nashville! If our virtual encounter demonstrates that surgery is your next step, we can arrange a “one stop shop” trip to Nashville for your operation. You’ll meet Dr. Ferguson and her team in person, see the preoperative medical team, and obtain the dreaded CoVID test the day before surgery (all patients get a CoVID test before surgery). We have established relationships and discounted rates with hotels that are walking distance of the hospital. Nashville also has a very user friendly airport for transit; or drive! Many of Music City’s favorite restaurants are open for business, the parks are beautiful for exploring, and there are even some live music options to make your trip both pain relieving and fun!
Plenty of available surgery times! While many areas of the country are dialing back elective operations due to the pandemic, St. Thomas Midtown has granted Dr. Ferguson even more surgery time for Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement (aTHA). We have ample opportunity to schedule your surgery around almost any schedule if you are medically and emotionally ready to go. Call Val today and let her do her magic 615-406-0095!
Tania A. Ferguson, M.D. MAS, is one of the nation’s premier orthopaedic surgeons in the field of hip and pelvic reconstruction.
Dr. Ferguson is a master surgeon focused exclusively on surgeries of the hip and pelvis. She has published more than 30 scholarly articles and studies, book chapters and on-line lectures to advance the practice of hip and pelvis surgery. She is a founding member of the Anterior Hip Foundation, a Trustee of the AO Foundation, and travels the globe as a renown educator on hip surgery.
Dr. Ferguson is internationally recognized for her pioneering work with the Anterior Approach Total Hip Arthroplasty (aTHA), a superior technique of hip replacement in which no muscles are detached from the hip and pelvis allowing unrestricted return to activities. She is passionate about preserving the native hip when possible. Dr. Ferguson is considered one of the nation’s most advanced and gifted surgeons for her work in the following hip preservation surgeries:
Periacetabular Osteotomy (PAO) to treat Hip Dysplasia
Bioregenerative surgery to treat Avascular Necrosis (AVN)
Surgery to treat fractures of the pelvis and acetabulum
Surgery to repair injured muscles (the abductors or gluteus muscles)
Dr. Ferguson has played a pivotal role in the evolution of the Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement (aTHA) in the United States. She has used this revolutionary method as her sole approach for elective hip replacement surgery since 2004. Dr. Ferguson’s advanced surgical skills and peri-operative pathways allow her patients the benefit of an OPIOID-FREE hip replacement recovery. The majority of her patients also take advantage of her “Outpatient Surgery” (same-day-discharge) hip replacement program. Her patients return to unlimited activities and active lifestyles rapidly after this tissue sparing technique for hip replacement surgery.
