Novel Surgical Technique: Percutaneous Pelvic Stabilization

[Denver, CO, February 19, 2020] Patients facing metastatic cancer now have a novel, minimally invasive solution to debilitating fractures and deterioration of the pelvis and/or sacrum. Daniel M Lerman, MD, at the Institute for Limb Preservation at Presbyterian St. Luke’s Medical Center, along with Anthony C Brown, MD, interventional radiologist, are using the latest technology in 3D reconstruction imaging and augmented reality to perform percutaneous tumor ablation and skeletal fixation for pathologic fractures of the pelvis. Using unsurpassed accuracy and pinpoint incisions, they are able to improve patient’s pain, function and quality of life by eradicating the tumor and providing bony stability with the use of orthopedic screws and bone cement. Through a minimally invasive approach they are pioneering a solution for patients who previously had none and were ultimately crippled by cancer eroding their pelvis bone.
