Chicago Direct Anterior Approach Hip Replacement

Hinsdale Orthopaedics is widely recognized as the leading provider of orthopaedic care for persons living throughout the Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area. For over 60 years, we have been delivering state-of-the-art care to patients in the region. Hinsdale Orthopaedics believes that when possible, surgery should be the last resort, and hip replacement surgery is no exception. Traditional hip replacement surgery involves making an incision on the side of the hip (lateral) or the back of the hip (posterior). These techniques involve detachment of muscles and tendons in order to replace the joint. This may lead to increased pain after surgery and may even delay recovery time. As a minimally invasive procedure, direct anterior approach hip replacement involves a small incision on the front of the hip so the hip joint can be replaced by moving muscles aside, without detaching any tendons. There is quicker recovery time, less post-surgery pain and more normal function after hip replacement using direct anterior approach hip replacement. It makes perfect sense that whenever Chicago patients are looking for the direct anterior approach hip replacement, the only name they need to know is Hinsdale Orthopaedics.

It is important for Chicagoans to realize that not everyone is a suitable candidate for direct anterior approach hip replacement. Disqualifiers can be a body mass index greater than 35 and complex hip disorders like hip dysplasia and prior surgeries. Another critical factor is that regardless of how minimally invasive the surgery, all hip replacement surgery is considered major surgery and complications can occur. That’s why you are going to want to make sure you have the competent team of Hinsdale Orthopaedics in charge of your direct interior approach hip replacement. Furthermore, the recovery success experienced by our Chicago patients depends a great deal on a number of factors. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Surgeon experience
  • Surgical approach
  • The implant
  • Patients’ health, and
  • Patients’ commitment to post-operative physical therapy

Five more excellent reasons to want to have Hinsdale Orthopaedics there for you:

As a highly successful alternative to traditional hip surgery, direct interior approach hip replacement has the possibility of less pain and faster recovery time for Chicago patients. Considered not only to be tissue sparing, the direct interior approach hip replacement procedure allows patients greater freedom of movement and the ability to bear their full weight immediately or soon after surgery. There is also less of a chance for scaring because the incision with direct interior approach hip replacement is relatively small. Moreover, since the muscles and tissues are not disturbed during direct interior approach hip replacement surgery, there is more time for the implant to stabilize after surgery.
