Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Anterior Hip Replacement ?

Traditionally, hip replacements are approached from the side or posterior sides of the damaged hip, tunneling an opening through the muscle and soft tissue in the joint. This traditional surgical method can present some pretty serious risks. For one, the surgery can cause dislocation. While painful, dislocation usually doesn’t cause any long-term damage to the hip joints. A more serious side effect is the potential for leg length discrepancy. During a hip replacement surgery, the surgeon will remove bone from the femoral head and stem, along with bone from the socket. In some cases, there is so much damaged bone that needs to be removed that surgeons are forced to remove excessive or uneven amounts of bone from one or both hips. When enough bone is removed, this can result in uneven leg length, which can present its own mobility problems.

This new approach approaches the replacement differently, entering the hip joint from the front of the hip. In the front (anterior) of the hip joint, there is a natural separation in the muscle that allows the surgeon to access the joint without cutting into, excising, or damaging muscle. The surgery also uses an X-ray machine during the surgery to make sure that they aren’t removing too much bone and causing uneven leg lengths. Recovery time following a hip replacement using an anterior approach is much shorter than the recovery time following a side or posterior approach, because so much less muscle is disturbed during the course of surgery. There is a much lower risk of hip dislocation of the hip joint when using an anterior approach, as the joint is much more stable than it would be following a posterior approach. At one hospital which performs mostly anterior approach hip replacements, there were no dislocations related to hip replacement for a period of 18 months, something doctors attributed to the use of the anterior surgical approach.

Some anterior approach hip replacement patients are walking normally as soon as a week after the surgery, and patients are afforded a much higher range of movement. After a posterior or side approach hip replacement, it may be three or four days before patients begin walking, and far more time would typically pass before the patient could regain mobility normalcy. Normally, hip replacement candidates are discouraged from activities like crossing their legs. Doctors who perform hip replacements using an anterior surgical approach encourage their patients to embrace their new mobility- if you can cross your legs, do it.
