    Anterior Approach Hip Replacement

    A relatively new approach to hip replacement in the United States, anterior approach hip replacement is a unique muscle-sparing procedure that uses the natural muscle at the front of the hip to access the hip joint and insert a hip prosthesis. This allows the surgeon to simply move the muscles that surround the hip joint, typically causing less trauma than traditional techniques since the muscles are not cut.

    Short and long-term benefits to the patient with an anterior approach include:

    • Shorter recovery time
    • Faster return to normal activity and function
    • Less blood loss
    • Less scarring
    • More mobility
    • Greater stability

    Dr. William Peace, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon with Panorama Orthopedics and Spine Center, performs the anterior approach hip replacement at OrthoColorado Hospital. He has received numerous honors for his research and work and has written several chapters for medical textbooks on orthopedic topics. He often speaks on the anterior approach at community seminars.
