Is Anterior Hip Replacement Right for you?
Dr. Matt Heckler and Dr. Chad Weber are two of the few physicians in the area who perform this innovative surgery. This technique replaces the hip joint without detaching muscles and tendons from the bone, causing less tissue damage, leading to a quicker recovery. Traditional Hip Replacement surgeries focus on lateral and posterior approaches, which cause disturbance of the posterior connective tissues that can lead to an increased risk of dislocation and longer recovery time. Patients who undergo the anterior approach will benefit with a quicker recovery, less post-operative pain, less blood loss, reduced risk of dislocation, and improved mobility.
