Anterior Approach

Potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility.1-3

 

The Anterior Approach for total hip replacement is a tissue-sparing alternative to traditional hip replacement that provides the potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility because the muscle tissues are spared during the surgical procedure. The technique allows the surgeon to work between the patient‘s muscles and tissues without detaching them from either the hip or thighbones—sparing the tissue from trauma.

Important Safety Information

 

The performance of a hip replacement depends on patient age, weight, activity level and other factors. As with all surgeries, there are potential risks, and recovery from hip replacement surgery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery; only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell if hip replacement is right for you.
