Total Hip Replacement

The anterior approach to total hip replacement is less invasive, hospital stays are shorter, and recovery and rehabilitation are quicker for patients. With smaller incisions and by going between the muscles rather than cutting them, the surgery is less painful. In addition, the minimal disturbance of the muscle also allows for a quicker recovery and rehabilitation. This approach is especially appropriate for patients who are active and eager to return to work and their daily activities as quickly as possible.

Total Knee Replacement

Osteoarthritis is the most common reason for knee replacement in the U.S. Osteoarthritis is the progressive loss of articular cartilage and degeneration of the knee joint due to aging or injury of the knee. Patients with severe destruction of the knee joint associated with progressive pain and impaired function may be candidates for total knee replacement.
