Anterior Hip Replacement
Anterior hip replacement is one of three common approaches (anterior, lateral and posterior) used to place a total hip replacement. It involves approaching surgery from the front of the hip joint (as opposed to the side or back of the joint).
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most successful surgical procedures of all time . It is extremely effective in alleviating pan caused by arthritis, injuries, and many other hip conditions.
The anterior approach to hip replacement, in particular, has seen a resurgence in recent years. Several surgeons at Orthopaedics SA offer the approach from hospitals across Adelaide.
Also called a minimally invasive hip replacement, this approach offers a range of benefits that can make it a great alternative to a conventional hip replacement.
If you have hip arthritis, please arrange a consultation with one of our highly qualified joint replacement surgeons to discuss how we can optimise treatment for you.
