Anterior hip replacement surgery

Potential for less pain. Faster recovery. Improved mobility.

Anterior hip replacement is a tissue-sparing alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery that provides the potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility because the muscle tissues are spared & not cut during the surgical procedure. The technique allows the surgeon to work between your muscles and tissues without detaching them from either the hip or thighbones - sparing the tissue from trauma.

Keeping the muscles intact may also help to prevent dislocations.

With the Anterior Approach, the surgeon uses one small incision on the front (anterior) of your hip as opposed to a much bigger scar to the side or back. Since the incision is in front, you’ll avoid the pain of sitting on the incision site.

Please note that Mr Ghoz's advice is based on his experience and the experience he has gained throughout his training and career based on experts opinions.
