Hip, hip, hooray!
This innovative Muscle-Sparing Total Hip Replacement procedure helps people with debilitating hip problems take a big, quick turn for the better.
An innovative, technologically-advanced approach to total hip replacement
If hip pain is holding you back from doing the things you love, it may be time to consider hip replacement surgery. Whether it’s arthritis, pain, stiffness or limited movement that’s slowing you down, minimally invasive total hip replacement may be the solution. Using muscle-sparing techniques, these innovative procedures decrease pain, shorten hospital stay and reduce recovery time to as little as two weeks. Many patients are able to get out of bed and walk the day after surgery.
It's time to take back your life
Total hip replacement is a common procedure done to relieve pain and improve mobility in patients with osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fractures, dislocations and other hip-related issues, according to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Today, more than 193,000 total hip replacements are performed in the United States each year.
In traditional hip replacement procedures, muscles must be cut to reach the hip joint. Minimally invasive procedures, however, enable the surgeon to work between the muscle to lessen pain and speed recovery time.
Two approaches - superior outcomes
There are two types of minimally invasive hip replacement: anterior and anterolateral. In anterior hip replacement, a three- to five-inch incision is made at the front of the hip. Anterolateral hip replacement is performed through a small incision at the side of the hip. Your surgeon will help determine which type of surgery is best for you.
Though the two types have different incision areas, they both offer many benefits, including:
- Smaller incision
- Reduced pain
- Faster recovery
- Shorter hospital stay
- Faster return to normal activities
- Reduced tissue and muscle damage
- Less risk of dislocation
