Anterior Hip Replacement

Whether it is caused by arthritis or injury, hip pain can limit your activities and diminish your quality of life. When other therapies fail to provide pain relief, Anterior Hip Replacement may be the solution. Compared to traditional hip replacement surgery, Anterior Approach Hip Replacement minimizes pain and speeds recovery.

Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery has changed the way orthopedic surgeons perform hip replacements. Using this procedure, Dr. Palmer is able to access the joint from the front of the hip instead of from the side or rear. This means that muscles attached to the hip are not cut, making the Anterior Approach one of the least invasive surgical options in hip replacement.

Nearly all patients who are candidates for a hip replacement may elect to undergo an Anterior Approach procedure. There are no restrictions for age, size, activity level, or gender. The Anterior Approach is particularly well-suited for patients concerned about their independence. Because the Anterior Approach virtually eliminates restrictions and dramatically reduces recovery time, patients can reclaim their active lifestyle more quickly without fear of losing their freedom.

Am I a candidate for Anterior Hip Replacement?

You may benefit from anterior hip replacement if:

  • Does hip pain limit your everyday activities and affect your quality of life?
  • Does the hip pain continue even while you are resting, day or night?
  • Does hip stiffness limit your ability to move or lift your leg?
  • Do anti-inflammatory drugs or other treatments provide you little or no pain relief?
  • Do you experience harmful or unpleasant side effects from hip medications?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then Anterior Approach Hip Replacement Surgery is worth exploring.
