Types of hip replacement surgery we offer
We offer traditional and direct anterior hip replacement techniques. The direct anterior (front) hip replacement is minimally invasive and requires smaller incisions which causes less trauma to tendons and muscles. This means patients experience faster recovery and less pain than with traditional approaches.
Types of hip replacement surgery we offer include:
- Total hip replacement: The ball of the thighbone and socket of the pelvis bone are replaced with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the device.
- Partial hip replacement: The ball of the thighbone is replaced with a prosthetic, not the socket.
- Hip resurfacing: This procedure involves removing damaged bone and cartilage, but instead of removing the ball of the thighbone, it is capped with metal.
