Hip Replacement Surgery
Modern Orthopedic Surgical Solutions for Hip Pain
Joint replacement surgery is among the most common surgeries performed at the Irving and Trophy Club offices, under the experienced guidance of Dr. Steven Sanders, who is fellowship trained in the specialty. There’s no need to continue suffering from joint pain, struggling to stand or walk normally because of hip pain.
Let our orthopedic specialists educate you on the many options available for treatments such as minimally invasive hip replacement or revisions. Overall, the benefits of hip replacement include decreased pain, increased mobility, improved quality of life, and freedom from degenerative conditions. We recommend, the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery.
Anterior Approach Hip Replacement
Dr. Sanders and his team use the latest in advanced tools and techniques, the best prosthetic implants, and minimally invasive procedures. Your comfort is our #1 priority, which is what we achieve with the anterior approach.
Because it is minimally invasive, this surgical technique uses one small incision on the front of the upper thigh. The surgeon works from the front (anterior) rather than the back, so patients don’t have to lie on their surgical site or experience more discomfort during recovery.
Using our specialized knowledge and surgical implements, your surgical team will reshape the socket in your hip or pelvic bone to for a new cup implant. The cup is often constructed of a metal shell and polyethylene or metal liner. Then your surgeon preps the top of your femur to hold the new ball of your hip joint.
Potential Benefits of Anterior Approach Surgery
- Saves Tissue
- Reduces Pain
- Speeds Up Recovery
- Boosts Mobility
- Keeps Muscles Intact
- Lessens Restrictions After Surgery
- Reduces Scarring
- Better Stability of the Implant
Dr. Steven Sanders offers the anterior approach joint replacement surgery technique because of its tendency to have an overall easier impact on patients. Since key muscles are not detached during this minimally invasive procedure, it is known as “tissue sparing.” The aim is to help patients bend and bear their full weight very soon after surgery.
After receiving hip replacement surgery, you’ll be amazed at the difference it can make in your life. We have patients tell us all the time that they can’t even remember how they got along before their surgery, and we know you’ll feel the same way.
Whether you’re dealing with rubbing, stiffness, discomfort, or pain in your hips, schedule an appointment with Dr. Sanders for a thorough evaluation and options to improve your life. Additionally, if you’ve been told in the past that you are not a good candidate for hip replacement surgery, let Dr. Sanders give you a second opinion. Because our practice uses the latest in medical technology, we can often offer options that were not available in the past, and in many cases, our team can show you options you never even knew existed.
