Anterior Total Hip Replacement

Regain Mobility and Relieve Hip Pain

Restoring Comfort and Function through Advanced Surgical Techniques

Anterior Total Hip Replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged hip joint with an artificial implant, utilizing a minimally invasive anterior approach. During the surgery, an incision is made at the front of the hip, allowing the surgeon to access the hip joint without detaching any muscles or tendons. The damaged bone and cartilage are carefully removed, and the artificial implant is securely placed, providing stability and restoring proper joint function.

Why Might I Need This Procedure?

Severe Hip Pain: Anterior Total Hip Replacement is an excellent option for individuals suffering from chronic hip pain that limits their mobility and affects their quality of life.

Degenerative Joint Disease: Conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, or other degenerative joint diseases can lead to the need for a hip replacement.

Fractures: In cases of hip fractures that cannot be effectively treated through non-surgical methods, Anterior Total Hip Replacement may be recommended.

Hip Joint Damage: Structural abnormalities, avascular necrosis, or previous hip surgeries that have led to significant joint damage may necessitate this procedure.

Benefits of the Procedure

Faster Recovery: The minimally invasive anterior approach typically results in reduced pain, fewer complications, and faster healing compared to traditional hip replacement approaches.

Improved Stability: The placement of the artificial implant through the anterior approach often leads to enhanced stability and a reduced risk of dislocation.

Enhanced Range of Motion: Patients frequently experience improved range of motion in the hip joint following Anterior Total Hip Replacement, allowing for increased flexibility and ease of movement.

Quicker Return to Daily Activities: With advancements in surgical techniques, patients can often resume their daily activities and enjoy an active lifestyle sooner than with traditional hip replacement procedures.

Post-Operative Care

After the procedure, a customized rehabilitation program will be designed to help restore strength, flexibility, and mobility in the hip joint. Pain management techniques and medications will be provided to ensure your comfort during the recovery period. Regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Dundon will be scheduled to monitor your progress, address any concerns, and provide guidance for a successful recovery.
