Why use Anterior Approach?
Accessing the hip joint from the front, avoids unnecessary muscle/soft tissue damage. The benefits of this minimally invasive/muscle sparing surgery include:
- Less post operative pain
- Faster recovery
- Reduced risk of dislocation
- Less post operative restrictions. You can bend down, lie on your side, cross your legs.
Deciding which surgical approach for hip replacement is best is made by the Orthopaedic surgeon at the time of your consultation.
