Frequently Asked Questions:
A minimally invasive hip replacement surgery that avoids nearby muscles and tendons. For eligible patients who want less pain and a faster recovery time after surgery. The anterior approach, which is more technically demanding, is not used by all hip surgeons.
Because the muscles surrounding the hip joint are not cut during the anterior approach, recovery takes only two to eight weeks.
The majority of post-surgery limitations are based on comfort. After a direct anterior approach, there is usually no need for hip precautions, so motion is not restricted. Patients can return to work when they are ready, which usually takes 2 weeks or more.
For at least six weeks, avoid sleeping on your affected side. After your doctor has given you the all-clear, listen to your body and only lie on your operative side when you are at ease.
Stairs may also be difficult to climb while recovering. Patients with anterior hip replacement can bend their hip freely immediately after surgery and use their hip normally without any restrictions. Before leaving the hospital, they go up and down the stairs under supervision.
