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.
Most patients who underwent typical hip replacement surgery experienced lengthy hospital stays, eight-inch scars, and a prolonged disruption of lifestyles. Thanks to a new surgical approach, patients look forward to a quicker recovery with less pain and no restrictions.
