Why
Direct Anterior Approach Hip Replacement?
In
the anterior approach, the surgeon accesses the hip joint by entering
through the front of the body that makes it
possible to reach the joint by separating rather than cutting and
then reattaching muscles. Smaller incisions, around four inches, are
possible with this procedure versus traditional hip surgery of around
12 inches.
The
anterior approach to total hip replacement is becoming more popular
because it is less invasive, hospital stays are shorter, and recovery
and rehabilitation are quicker for patients. This less invasive
surgery is especially appropriate for patients who are active and
eager to return to work and their daily activities as quickly as
possible.
Although
the anterior approach has been in use to some degree since the 1980s,
new instrumentation allowing it to be performed using smaller
incisions has made it increasingly sought after nowadays.
