Direct Anterior Hip Surgery
Dr. McBride specializes in direct anterior hip replacement surgery, where the patient’s hip joint is accessed from the front of the body, instead of the traditional backside approach. The direct anterior method allows the hip to be replaced without detaching muscle from the pelvis or thigh bone and offers a number of advantages for patients when compared to conventional surgery:
- Average hospital stay of 2 to 4 days, rather than 3 to 10 days
- A smaller incision—4 to 5 inches instead of 10 to 12 inches
- Less disturbance to muscles, reducing recovery time to 2 to 8 weeks instead of 2 to 4 months
- Reduced pain, less blood loss and quicker return to normal activities
“Direct anterior hip surgery allows us to work through the body’s natural space between the muscles,” says Dr. McBride. “It leaves the most essential muscles for hip function undisturbed and, therefore, leads to quicker recovery after surgery.”
