For a quicker recovery, less invasive approach to hip replacement and a chance to return to a full, active lifestyle sooner, the anterior approach is a remarkable option for patients suffering with debilitating hip pain.
Approximately 375,000 Americans undergo hip replacement surgery each year. This number probably will double over the next 25 years due in part to the aging population. Now, patients in Broward County can look forward to a quick recovery with few restrictions due to a less invasive procedure called ‘anterior hip replacement surgery.’
More than 300,000 Americans will undergo hip replacement surgery this year.
