(Giv elink to:http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Knee-replacement/Pages/Kneereplacementexplained.aspxWhyDirect Anterior Approach Hip Replacement?Inthe anterior approach, the surgeon accesses the hip joint by enteringthrough the front of the body that makes itpossible to reach the joint by separating rather than cutting andthen reattaching muscles. Smaller incisions, around four inches, arepossible with this procedure versus traditional hip surgery of around12 inches.Theanterior approach to total hip replacement is becoming more popularbecause it is less invasive, hospital stays are shorter, and recoveryand rehabilitation are quicker for patients. This less invasivesurgery is especially appropriate for patients who are active andeager to return to work and their daily activities as quickly aspossible.
Althoughthe anterior approach has been in use to some degree since the 1980s,new instrumentation allowing it to be performed using smallerincisions has made it increasingly sought after nowadays.Yourknee or hip replacement surgery day by day guideHereinwe present you with an example of your orthopaedic surgery medicalexperience:Day1:Flyingfrom UK.
