Hip Replacement: Anterior Vs. Posterior

Elderly Patient Being Shown Hip X-Ray by SurgeonA common surgical procedure in the U.S., total hip replacement has traditionally been performed through a posterior (back side) approach. In recent years, the anterior (front side) approach has gained popularity. At High Mountain Orthopedics, our surgeons use state-of-the-art techniques and technology to perform hip replacement surgery, and can determine which approach will meet your individual needs and provide the best outcome for your specific condition.

Anterior Vs. Posterior: Which Is Better?

The hip joint is one of the largest weight-bearing joints in the body. Of all joint replacement surgeries, hip joint replacement has been the most successful. Like any surgery, there are risks and benefits to each type of approach. Regardless of the type of approach used, the most important thing to take into consideration is the skill, experience and reputation of the surgeon you choose. Our orthopedic doctors are well-versed in different methods of hip replacement surgeries and stay current on all the latest technologies, procedures and joint replacement techniques in the field of orthopedic surgery.

The Mako System for Total Hip Replacement

Our fellowship trained surgeons use the Mako system for total hip replacement. Mako technology provides our surgeons with a 3-D model of each patient’s hip in order to create a patient-specific plan for the surgery. In addition, this system features Mako robotic-arm assisted technology, which aids our board certified surgeons in removing diseased bone, helping preserve healthy bone, and positioning the total hip implant based on the patient’s unique anatomy.
