Hip replacement surgery
Hip replacement surgery relieves hip pain caused by injury from fractures and conditions like avascular necrosis or severe arthritis. In this procedure, a damaged hip joint is replaced with a prosthetic implant. Our patients have experienced great results from this procedure, including better stability and mobility and less pain.
The anterior hip replacement approach
Our orthopedic program offers the advanced anterior hip replacement approach, which allows our surgeons to operate through a smaller surgical incision than in traditional total hip replacement surgeries. This means patients experience less blood loss, scarring and tissue damage.
Muscles surrounding the hip joint are separated at intervals, which naturally occur within the tissue. Muscles are not cut nor are they detached from the femur or pelvis during the surgery. As a result, patients do not have to heal from surgical trauma to the muscles.
Hip resurfacing is a surgical alternative to hip replacement surgery. Instead of replacing the hip joint entirely, a hollow, mushroom-like cap is is placed over the round socket of the hip bone.
Partial hip resurfacing
In this procedure, a prosthetic component replaces the top of the femur (thigh) bone only, not the socket, and diseased damaged parts of the femur are removed.
