Direct Anterior Approach for Total Hip Replacement

 

Dr Ford has done special training to perform a newer approach for total hip replacement surgery. He uses natural muscle intervals through the front of the hip and special equipment to preserve the anatomy, not cutting any muscles or tendons during the procedure. Since these muscles are critical for hip stability, this approach allows for increased stability and a quicker, more natural recovery. Some patients can go home the day of surgery and most can go home by the following day.
