Video: Watch an Anterior Hip Replacement

Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement

We provide the direct anterior approach (DAA) to the hip replacement here at MCJR. The DAA involves going around the muscles of the hip instead of splitting through them. Because of this, your hip is less likely to be dislocated and the recovery is less painful. Therefore, the DAA typically allows for a faster and smoother recovery than a traditional hip replacement. Dr. Joshua Carter and Dr. Wesley Lackey specialize in this approach. You can learn more about the anterior approach here.
