Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery

Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery (DAA – Direct Anterior Approach)

This technique differs from normal hip replacements in that it utilises an approach that avoids cutting any muscles to insert the artificial joint. This may allow a quicker recovery from surgery and less discomfort for patients after the operation. The prosthesis used is the same titanium implant used in regular hip replacements and can have either a plastic, metal or ceramic bearing. Not all people are suitable for this approach and this will need to be discussed with your Surgeon at the time of consultatio.
