Anterior hip replacement is a less invasive surgical option than traditional hip replacement and offers benefits such as 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, Dr. Johnson 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.
While used primarily for knee replacement, MAKO Robotic Assisted Surgery is also an excellent tool where appropriate in anterior hip replacement. MAKO maps a customize surgery to the patient’s unique anatomy for a precise alignment. Patients experiencing severe hip pain or stiffness resulting from: noninflammatory degenerative joint disease (including osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis, or avascular necrosis), rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis are encouraged to explore their options with MAKO technology.
