Anterior Hip Replacement
What is Modesto Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery
Modesto anterior hip replacement surgery is a procedure that involves the replacement of a damaged or worn out hip joint with an artificial one. This type of surgery is performed through an anterior approach, meaning that the surgeon accesses the hip joint from the front instead of from the back or side.
This can potentially reduce trauma to muscles and other soft tissue, resulting in a quicker recovery time for patients. Additionally, this approach may also improve range of motion post-operatively. Anterior hip replacement surgery can help people with chronic pain or limited mobility due to age-related arthritis, traumatic injury, developmental abnormalities, or other causes.
Anterior means “in front,” so with this type of surgery, Dr. Giang accesses the hip joint from the front of the body instead of making an incision on the side or back.
What Are the Advantages of Anterior Hip Replacement In Modesto?
Modesto anterior hip replacement offers a number of advantages over traditional posterior hip replacement, including less pain and faster recovery times. It is also possible to preserve more of the muscles around the hip joint with an anterior approach, which can help improve stability and range of motion compared to posterior approaches. Anterior hip replacements also have fewer restrictions on activity levels after surgery than posterior replacements, allowing for a quicker return to normal activities.
Additionally, because of the preservation of muscle tissue during the procedure, there is less risk of dislocations with an anterior hip replacement. Finally, Dr. Giang’s patients report improved results in terms of leg length and femoral offset following an anterior approach. Overall, this type of procedure provides numerous benefits that make it a popular choice for many hip replacement patients.
