What Are the Benefits of Anterior Hip Replacement?
Hip replacement surgery involves removing worn or damaged components of the hip joint and replacing them with implants (prostheses) to restore joint function. Anterior-approach hip replacement is an innovation in joint arthroplasty that disturbs less healthy tissue than traditional hip replacement. During the procedure, the surgeon accesses the hip joint from the front of the body instead of the back or side.
This anterior approach allows surrounding hip muscles to be split instead of removed and reattached, which reduces post-surgical discomfort and increases the odds for successful and lasting improvement. Anterior hip replacement is typically associated with smaller incisions, less bleeding, a shorter hospital stay, and a more rapid return to normal activities.
