I need a hip replacement. Can I and should I have it by the direct anterior approach? I am told it is minimally invasive with many benefits.

Nowadays I get asked this question often. Not only by my patients requiring a hip replacement but also by people I meet at social gatherings. I have used the posterior approach for THR with excellent results for a decade but took the time and effort to train in DAA-THR and offer it to most patients now. (Not everyone is suitable for this approach).

I have compiled a fact sheet and my thoughts on this approach in this information sheet below. Contact us if you would like to learn more and we are always there to help.
