Hip Replacement Surgery

Anterior Total Hip Replacement

Life moves and you want to move with it. Don’t let chronic hip pain slow you down.  Parrish Healthcare Orthopedics offers this revolutionary surgical procedure that is helping more people get back to what moves them—work, play, and daily living.   

Anterior total hip replacement, compared to the traditional posterior hip replacement approach, offers patients many advantages:    
  • Minimally invasive (performed through tiny incisions instead of one large opening) 
  • Less damage to major muscles. The anterior approach avoids cutting major muscles.
  • Less post-operative pain. Because the surgery uses tiny incisions patients typically experience less pain after surgery.
  • Faster recovery. Patients can bend at the hip and bear weight sooner.
  • Decreased risk of hip dislocation. Anterior hip replacement surgery does not disturb the muscles and soft tissue structures that naturally prevent the hip from dislocating, reducing risk of a hip dislocation.
  • Better range of movement. Patients may bend over or sit with their legs crossed without risking hip dislocations.
  • Shorter hospital stay.   

To find out if the anterior hip replacement approach is right for you or  to learn more about total hip replacement, attend one of our upcoming seminars or schedule a consultation appointment today.
