BSW Premier Orthopaedics offers anterior hip replacements, a proven, minimally invasive technique that usually minimizes pain and the time from surgery to recovery.

Anterior hip replacement offers many potential benefits:

  • It allows the surgeon to get to the hip joint from the front of the hip rather than having to cut and then reattach muscles around the hip as in the conventional approach.
  • In the anterior approach, an orthopedic surgeon reaches the hip by working through natural openings between muscles. By not having to cut the muscles, there is usually decreased pain and healing time.
  • With a conventional approach, typically there are strict precautions for hip movement, which can slow down recovery. With the anterior approach, patients are allowed to bend their hip freely post-operatively and can bear full weight as soon as comfortable. This usually results in a more rapid return to normal function.

Dr Quinby says, “It’s my job to get you back to the life you once enjoyed as quickly and painlessly as possible.”
