Leading the Way in Direct Anterior Hip Replacement
Maimonides has trained surgical experts in Anterior Hip Replacement. This special surgery technique results in an expedited healing process. It addresses some of the downsides of hip replacements: pain, medications, movement limitations, and muscle damage.
In Anterior Hip Replacement, the bone surgeon uses traditional implants. The key difference is the smaller incisions. This is only possible with highly specialized instruments.
The surgeon separates the muscles, working with the tissue rather than remove muscle from the bone. This technique is able to reduce the amount of scarring, and promptly return the person who undergoes it to normal activities. After having an Anterior Hip Replacement, a person may be able to walk with a physical therapist the same afternoon.
Another advantage to the technique is the way it allows more precise measurements of legs, making sure they match as surgery is completed. After surgery, there are no restrictions or warnings. Most people feel they do not need a cane or other walking aid after the first post-op visit to the bone doctor.
