Anterior Hip Replacement Orthopedic Surgeons

Anterior Hip Replacement

The anterior approach in hip replacement offers an advantage to the patient with a smaller incision, avoiding the need to separate muscles and their attachments to the long bones. A patient can also expect a shorter hospital stay, less pain following surgery and a shorter recovery time. Scott W. Mox M.D. and Michael H. Berkson M.D. have received advanced certification in this surgical technique.
