About Anterior Hip Replacement

For many people who suffer from arthritis, hip pain, stiffness, and/or limited hip movement, the only option they have for relief is a conventional total hip replacement done through the posterior (back) or lateral (side) of the body.

At SPORT, we believe in options. We offer a proven, minimally invasive technique that usually minimizes pain and the time from surgery to recovery.

Anterior hip replacement offers many potential benefits:

  • It allows our surgeons to get to the hip joint from the front of the hip rather than having to cut, then reattach muscles around the hip as in the conventional approach.
  • In the anterior approach, our surgeons reach the hip by working through natural openings between muscles. By not having to cut the muscles, there is usually decreased pain and healing time.
  • With a conventional approach, typically there are strict precautions for hip movement, which can slow down recovery. With the anterior approach, patients are allowed to bend their hip freely postoperatively and can bear full weight as soon as comfortable. This usually results in a more rapid return to normal function.
  • The HANA operating table makes it easier to access the hip through a small, soft-tissue-preserving incision.

SPORT offers board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic specialist physicians on its staff and quality equipment and technology. With the anterior hip replacement, we combine all of those to create a new and improved total hip surgery that provides improved results and quality of life.

There may be other reasons our surgeons will recommend a hip replacement surgery.
