Anterior hip surgery is the latest, most natural method of hip replacement. Patients who are candidates for the anterior hip surgery approach realize significant benefits, such as: more muscle spared, fewer dislocations, less need for hip precautions after surgery and less pain.
People move more freely and return to work and recreational activities much earlier – anywhere from 2 to 8 weeks after surgery, depending on the physical demands of their jobs and recreational activities.
