Anterior total hip replacement (arthroplasty) is done through a small incision on the front of the hip, and allows the surgeon to go between the muscles around the hip instead of cutting them. This muscle sparing, minimally invasive approach to hip replacement allows for patients to be up and moving the same day and have a shortened recovery time, increased mobility, and faster recovery.
