Hip pain and joint stiffness limits mobility and diminishes your quality of life. No matter the cause – arthritis, injury, lifestyle-related trauma – if non-surgical approaches like physical therapy or anti-inflammatory medications do not effectively resolve your pain, hip replacement at an outpatient hip center may be your best option to help you feel new again.
When considering any surgery it’s wise to educate yourself on the various approaches and possible outcomes. Details about the procedure, pain levels and medications, recovery timeline and precautions, risks and aesthetics are likely to be factors in your decision making process. Early on in your discovery process it may be beneficial to determine whether or not you are a candidate for an anterior approach hip replacement.
Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery has changed the way
orthopedic surgeons perform hip replacements.
This minimally invasive technique is performed daily by Dr. Shawn W. Palmer, and enables patients of The Hip & Knee Center to recover faster and with less pain. In fact, most patients go home the same day surgery is performed and are walking unassisted a few days later.
