Do you have hip pain?

Anterior hip replacement is a solution.


Are you experiencing hip pain that's making it difficult to do your usual activities like walking, gardening, cleaning, hunting or fishing? It's very common, and there are lots of possible causes, but there are treatments available.

 Many people have hip pain for different reasons. One of the most common causes of hip pain is arthritis, a condition that causes the joints to become stiff and painful.

In some cases, hip pain can be so severe that it requires a surgical treatment called a hip replacement. This is when a damaged hip joint is replaced with a new, artificial joint. There are two main types of hip replacements: posterior and anterior.

An anterior hip replacement is a type of hip replacement surgery that offers many benefits compared to the traditional posterior approach.  In this surgery, the surgeon accesses the hip joint through the front of the hip, instead of the back.  The anterior hip replacement surgery requires special training and has been performed at Wisconsin River Orthopaedics for years.

One advantage of the anterior approach is that it often results in less pain after surgery. This is because the muscles and tissues around the hip joint are less disrupted during the operation. This means that people who have an anterior hip replacement typically recover faster and have less pain during their recovery.

Another advantage of anterior hip replacement is that it often allows people to recover their normal hip function more quickly. This is because the muscles and tissues that control the hip joint are not cut or damaged during the surgery. This means that people who have an anterior hip replacement often have a smoother and faster recovery and are able to return to their normal activities sooner.

Anterior hip replacement is a complex and demanding surgery that requires a highly skilled and experienced surgeon. It is important to carefully choose the right surgeon for this type of operation, as the success of the surgery depends on the surgeon's expertise and experience.

Before having a hip replacement, your doctor will do a thorough evaluation of your hip and will talk with you about your medical history and symptoms. They will also explain the risks and benefits of the procedure, and help you make an informed decision about whether it is the right choice for you.

If you are experiencing hip pain that is affecting your daily activities, it is important to talk with your doctor about your options. Anterior hip replacement is a treatment option that can help relieve hip pain and improve your quality of life. It is important to choose a highly skilled and experienced surgeon, and to carefully consider the risks and benefits of the procedure before making a decision. With the right treatment and care, you can get back to the activities you love and enjoy life without pain.
