Surgeons receive special training to perform anterior hip procedures

Apr 17, 2018, 08:46 AM

Skagit Regional Health Orthopedics and Sports Medicine has a team of orthopedic surgeons and physician assistants providing services ranging from arthroscopic procedures, hand and carpal tunnel surgeries and total joint replacements. Learn more about Drs. Christopher Sheu and Michael Picco who are trained to offer several total hip procedures, including the less invasive anterior approach:

Christopher Sheu, MD: Dr. Sheu received his medical degree at George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C.; completed a residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Houston; and performed a Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Fellowship at Southern California Orthopaedic Institute in Los Angeles.

Dr. Sheu specializes in comprehensive, minimally invasive arthroscopic and reconstructive surgery of the hip, shoulder, knee and ankle, including ligament reconstruction, tendon repair, joint replacement, fracture care and sports medicine in patients of all ages.

An active person who enjoys sports including basketball, tennis, swimming, golf and hiking, he is also a regular at the gym.

“I know what it’s like to suffer an injury and be out of sports for a while. People want to be back in action. It’s vital to their happiness,” Dr. Sheu said. “I enjoy getting people back to what they love to do and getting back to their normal level of activity with a good outcome.”

Michael Picco, DO: Dr. Picco received his medical degree at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Vallejo, California. He completed an internship and residency at Genesys Regional Medical Center in Grand Blanc, Michigan.

Dr. Picco’s special interests include joint replacement, particularly of the hip and knee, fracture care and treating injuries of the shoulder or rotator cuff.

Dr. Picco said he finds joint replacement to be a rewarding experience as patients return to an active, pain-free life.

“People expect a good result. People don’t necessarily want to put this off until they can’t walk any more, when it’s possible to be healthy and active,” Dr. Picco said.
