If you’re a candidate for hip replacement surgery, one option you should consider is anterior hip replacement surgery at Harbin Clinic Orthopaedics and Sports Medicine Rome. Unlike traditional hip replacement surgery, anterior hip replacement surgery allows the physician to replace the joint using a minimally invasive procedure that can lead to a much faster recovery time than traditional hip replacement surgery. “If you’re facing hip replacement surgery, anterior hip replacement surgery is a great option as it can lead to less trauma on the joint and muscles which can facilitate a faster recovery,” Dr. Jason Rogers says. The procedure uses an incision in the front of the hip instead of the side or back of the hip and provides the potential for less pain, faster recovery and improved mobility. Benefits could include: Faster recovery time Less post-operative pain Reduced risk of hip dislocation Reduced scarring Potential for fewer restrictions during recovery Potential for stability of the implant sooner after surgery If you would like to learn more about anterior hip replacement surgery or would like to consult a physician about hip or joint pain, call Harbin Clinic Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine Rome at 762-235-2700 or visit the web site at www.harbinclinic.com/orthopaedics.
