Minimally Invasive Anterolateral Hip Replacement

Minimally invasive anterolateral total hip replacement surgery is a specific approach to the hip that minimizes surgical trauma to soft tissues by working between muscle groups with a single small incision. There is no detachment or splitting of muscles that takes place during this procedure. This allows for less post-operative pain, shorter recovery without need for typical hip restrictions or precautions, and a faster return to function

Revision Hip Replacement

Revision hip replacement is a complex surgical procedure in which all or part of a previously implanted hip-joint is replaced with a new artificial hip-joint. Total hip replacement surgery is an option to relieve severe arthritis pain that limits your daily activities. During total hip replacement the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components.

Total Hip Replacement

The hip joint is one of the body's largest weight-bearing joints and is the point where the thigh bone (femur) and the pelvis (acetabulum) join. It is a ball and socket joint in which the head of the femur is the ball and the pelvic acetabulum forms the socket. The joint surface is covered by a smooth articular cartilage that cushions and enables smooth movements of the joint.

Outpatient Total Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgery is the most common orthopedic surgery performed. It involves the replacement of the damaged hip bone (ball shaped upper end of the femur) with a metal ball attached to a metal stem that is fixed into the femur and attached to the pelvic region.
