Why I No Longer Use the Anterior Approach for Primary Total Hip Replacement Surgery

As a surgeon with a specialty practice in hip and knee replacement surgery, patients rely on my expertise.  Recently, a patient asked me why I no longer use the anterior approach for total hip replacement.  I stopped performing this procedure because in my experience there are no advantages to the surgery, rather a number of potential disadvantages.  Simply, I couldn't continue to use a procedure that I could not trust to deliver every time.

A Hip Replacement Surgery Q & A

As head of the Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, I often am asked to discuss my specialty: hip and knee replacement surgery. One reporter recently asked me to comment on his five top questions about hip replacement surgery.  Since these are questions I often hear from patients, I wanted to share this Q & A on my blog.
