Stryker Pivot Guardian™
The Stryker Pivot Guardian™ is the first-ever table designed specifically for hip arthroscopy. It attaches to a typical operating room table, and utilizes the Trendelenburg position and the patient’s own bodyweight to distract the hip joint. There is no pudendal post to compress the genitalia and surrounding nerves.
In addition, the table design allows for much easier intraoperative imaging, which can decrease surgical time. Recent studies have shown a near total elimination of pudendal neuralgia and genitourinary complaints through the use of the Stryker Pivot Guardian™.
