Anterior Hip Replacement
Patients who have decided with their physician that a hip replacement is the best option to treat their hip pain may be eligible for the Anterior Hip Replacement. This type of replacement is one of the least invasive procedures and has proven to be a surgical technique that minimizes the pain and the time from surgery to recovery.
What are the benefits of the Anterior Hip approach compared to the traditional approach for hip replacements?
Anterior Hip Replacement allows patients to immediately bend their hip freely and bear full weight when comfortable, resulting in a more rapid return to normal function.
Potential advantages over conventional hip replacement include:
- less pain
- smaller incision
- shorter hospital stay
- faster recovery
- no muscle detachment
- reduced blood loss
