The Bone & Joint Center offers a full spectrum of orthopedic services. What sets us apart is our specialized orthopedic care, nationally recognized by performance athletes and patients seeking state-of-the-art hip and joint replacement.
Anterior hip replacement is a less invasive surgical option than traditional hip replacement and offers benefits of less pain and faster recovery for certain types of patients. The anterior approach is a proven technique that uses smaller incisions and less tissue disruption during surgery. By working from the front of the hip, the surgeon performs the replacement between muscles, leaving them undisturbed. This means that patients can bend and bear weight sooner than with traditional hip surgery and can often return to activities with fewer restrictions. Dr. Derick Johnson can determine if the anterior approach is right for you.
Treating athletes requires understanding athletes. We believe that an integral aspect of helping people return to the activities they enjoy is having a presence in the field of play.
