Anterior Hip Replacement - A Success in WNY

January 28th, 2014 11:22am

Here’s an interesting article about “anterior hip replacement” – a surgical technique that can dramatically decrease patient recovery time from hip surgery to return to regular routines. Many anterior hip patients also report less post-operative pain than those who had traditional hip replacement. That’s because approach requires significantly less muscle tissue cutting during surgery. As such, it’s becoming an increasingly popular alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery.

The patient profiled in the linked piece went back to his job by the second week after his anterior hip replacement surgery and could do a spinning class by the fourth week. That’s not unusual for this procedure.

Excelsior Orthopaedics is proud to have Dr. Nicholas Violante on our team. He is highly skilled and experienced with anterior hip replacement surgery. In fact, Dr. Violante is one of the few surgeons in the Buffalo area currently performing this procedure. He does so regularly, using the surgical table referenced in the article – a table specifically designed for anterior hip replacement surgery.

Dr. Violante’s patients experience exactly what the gentleman in this article talks about – remarkably fast recovery from total hip replacement surgery when the “anterior hip” technique is used.
