Hip replacement surgery using the anterior method can lead to quicker recovery and less pain. The surgeons at French Hospital Medical Center are experts at helping patients return to normal as quickly as possible.
Anterior hip replacement is a technique that allows the surgeon to reach and replace your damaged hip joint from the front of your hip instead of the more traditional method of operating from the side or through the back. It also means that there is less muscle damage.
Anterior hip replacement is done using a state-of-the-art table called the Hana that allows for:
And a much faster return to your daily activities. Most patients can bend their hip freely and bear full weight almost immediately following surgery.
