Traditional Hip Replacement and Anterior Hip Replacement

Traditional Hip Replacement and Anterior Hip Replacement

Testimonial headshot

Both times I had hip replacement surgery, I was trying to get away from wall-to-wall, grit-your-teeth pain. My traditional hip replacement was 15 years ago with a long stay in hospital, long recovery, and long period of post-op pain — it took 3 people to get me into my house! This time, with Anterior Hip Replacement, I was up the first day with a cane instead of a walker or crutches. There was a day and night difference in my mobility. I can bend from my hip in ways that make everyday tasks, like getting dressed, so much easier.
