Anterior Approach Hip Replacement
Less Invasive Hip Replacement Surgery
Using the anterior approach technique, our surgeons can perform a hip replacement with a smaller incision. Instead of cutting through muscles and tendons, your surgeon is able to go between and cause minimal disruption. Almost all patients are a candidate for this type of hip replacement surgery.
Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in the anterior approach for a total hip replacement.
The Benefits of the Anterior Approach
An anterior approach hip replacement can relieve pain caused by arthritis. There are many benefits of an anterior approach hip replacement over traditional hip replacement surgery:
- Less damage to major muscles and tendons
- Reduced hospital stay
- Quicker recovery time
- Decreased risk of hip dislocation after surgery
