The latest minimally invasive surgical techniques to hip replacement are making recovery faster than ever. The anterior hip replacement involves making a small incision at the front of the hip instead of the usual incision in the gluteal area.
Replacing the hip through the front allows your doctor to perform surgery through a space between two of the muscles of your hip without having to detach muscles from your hip area as needed for the other approaches. This is associated with faster early recovery.
Now with an anterior hip replacement, your muscles stay whole, allowing you to get back on your feet more quickly and decreasing the chance of your prosthetic hip dislocating out of place. At University of Miami Health System, our expert orthopaedic surgeons specialize in this advanced procedure and work hard to ensure all patients can get back to their regular activities as quickly as possible.
