Anterior Approach Hip Replacement in Dallas/Irving
During anterior hip replacement surgery on the Hana table, patients receive a four-inch incision below and to the outside of the groin. This incision allows surgeons to push the muscles aside to access the hip socket—the site of the hip replacement.
Benefits of Anterior Approach Hip Replacement Surgery
- Does not detach muscles or tendons
- Faster and less painful recovery time
- Less blood loss
- Less scarring
- Smaller incision site
With the anterior approach, patients are relieved of the precautions associated with traditional hip replacement—such as dislocation precautions or restricted activity. Following surgery, anterior patients can use a toilet of normal height and cross their legs, as well.
