Direct Anterior Hip Arthroplasty

All patients with hip arthritis requiring total hip arthroplasty may be candidates for a minimally invasive, direct anterior muscle sparing approach called direct anterior total hip arthroplasty. Benefits of direct anterior total hip arthroplasty include:

  • Faster recovery
  • Less muscle damage
  • No motion restrictions after surgery
  • Improved accuracy of implant positioning

Talk to your doctor or make an appointment with our team using the contact information below to see if you are a candidate for the anterior hip approach. Patients who are significantly obese or have a large abdomen, with certain prior hip injuries or surgeries and with unusual congenital hip deformities may not be candidates for this approach.
