Anterior Approach

The Anterior Approach, which is frequently requested by athletes and others looking to maintain an active lifestyle, can provide be less painful and offer a quicker recovery than traditional hip replacement. 

During this procedure, the hip joint is accessed through a single, short incision made over the front of the hip joint without detaching the muscle from the pelvis (hip) or femur (thigh bone).  The muscles important to hip function are not disturbed so patients have more freedom of movement with less pain.  As a result, healing can occur more quickly.

Please contact us at 1-888-573-2462 to learn more about this minimally invasive surgery and how you can get a consult with an orthopedic surgeon near you.

Our team is prepared to discuss your treatment options, focusing first on nonsurgical first such as medication. If surgery is indicated such as hip replacement, advanced minimally invasive procedures are available. Move freely, with less pain.
