Total Hip Arthroplasty

This project is a surgical sequence that depicts a portion of a  posterolateral approach to total hip arthroplasty.  This was created under the guidance of Dr. Jefferey Gollish at Sunnybrook Orthopedics, ON. Initial sketches were completed during OR observations and over 10 subsequent iterations and 80 individual drafts led to the final piece shown here.
