Anterior Hip Replacement

Many people suffering with arthritis and hip pain/stiffness may be candidates for a less invasive hip replacement procedure – the anterior approach. This surgical option may mean a shorter recovery period and quicker return to daily lifestyle than with most traditional hip replacement procedures. The anterior approach allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the lateral (side) or posterior (back) approach. From the front, the most important muscles for hip function – the gluteal muscles that attach to the pelvis and femur – are left undisturbed and, therefore, do not require healing.
