Suffering from hip pain, or wanting to regain lost mobility? With new advancements in hip replacement surgery, your daily life can change for the better with a remarkable reduction in recovery time.
Direct Anterior Hip Surgery
Traditional hip replacement techniques can require large incisions and significantly affect your joint and the surrounding muscles and tendons. But a new technique—direct anterior hip surgery—can reduce incisions significantly, plus prevents the need to detach muscles and tendons, minimizing discomfort and getting you back on your feet more quickly.
New Technology for a Faster Recovery
While in the past surgeons have performed hip replacements by operating from the side or back, an innovative new approach allows doctors easier access to a hip joint from a patient's front. A natural space between the muscles from this angle prevents the need to cause trauma to other muscles that connect the pelvis and thigh bone; as a result, recovery time is on a fast track from the moment an operation is completed.
