Gregory William Brick, MD, MBCHB, Orthopaedic Surgeon in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, discusses the anterior surgical approach to hip replacement.
In a traditional posterior hip replacement, the patient is laying on their side. In an anterior hip replacement, the patient is in a supine position on their back.
Through the anterior approach, the recovery time is faster and patients are generally much more comfortable post-operatively.
If you are considering a hip replacement, you should consult a physician who specializes in anterior hip replacements for more information.
