Patient Recovery Benefits: Anterior Hip Surgery
El Camino Innovates

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.

Spend a few minutes watching this video, in which Dr. Jeffrey Kliman discusses the benefits of the anterior hip surgery approach from a patient's perspective. Topics covered in this anterior hip surgery video include:

  • Anterior Approach to Hip Surgery Overview
  • Advantages to the Anterior Hip Surgery Approach
  • Patient Recovery Benefits
  • Real-life Patient Experiences

"I’ve had more than 40 patients where I’ve performed a posterior approach on one hip and then they come back years later to have the second hip done on the opposite side, and we’ve performed the [second] procedure through an anterior approach. Those people all came back to tell us that this was anywhere from four to five times easier to recover from."
