Patients who are exploring the latest advancements in total hip replacement will be interested in a complimentary brochure about the revolutionary, less invasive direct anterior approach to hip surgery. The brochure is available from Dr. Steven Louis of Hinsdale Orthopaedics, one of a few surgeons in the Chicago area performing the direct anterior approach. The brochure is available for download at www.anterior-hip-surgery.com
Dr. Louis has performed more than 150 hip replacements using the direct anterior approach (from the front). He prefers it because it is less invasive, less painful and allows a quicker recuperation than traditional hip replacement surgery done from the rear or side of the body. That’s because this technique is minimally invasive and allows the surgeon to replace the hip without detaching muscles around it. Consequently, the important gluteus muscles, which play a key role in hip function, are less affected than with traditional hip replacement surgery.
This sophisticated procedure depends on surgeon training and experience. Dr. Louis is a board certified orthopaedic surgeon, fellowship trained in the area of trauma, giving him an edge over other surgeons, because he is experienced in surgical techniques that spare as much tissue as possible.
With less tissue and muscle damage, patients return to normal activities sooner and are pain-free more quickly.
