Hip Replacement

Advances in technology and technique have made it possible for our surgeons to replace hips using either a posterior or an anterior approach. Both approaches are safe and effective.

Posterior approach

  • Done through a "mini" incision
  • Lessens pain
  • Speeds up recovery time

Anterior approach

  • Small incision from the front
  • Separates muscles rather than incising them

Benefits of both

  • Reduces rehabilitation time
  • Decreases post-operative discomfort
  • Lessens risk of dislocation immediately following surgery

Consult your surgeon to discuss which method is right for you.
