Is Anterior Hip Replacement the right option for you?
Anterior Hip Replacement is a minimally invasive hip surgery to replace the hip joint without cutting through any muscles. An alternative approach to traditional hip replacement surgery, the procedure involves a small incision in front of the hip, instead of on the side or back of the hip. This enables Dr. Lohrbach to access the hip joint without cutting muscle.
- Less damage to muscles
- Smaller incision
- Shorter time in surgery
- Reduced post-operative pain
- Faster Recovery and healing
- Less scarring
