The Anterior Approach

Anterior Approach Philosophy

Minimally invasive or tissue-sparing orthopedic procedures have gained attention as patients demand shortened recovery time and accelerated rehabilitation. Development of efficient, repeatable, tissue-sparing total hip replacement procedures is important.

The Anterior Approach Surgical Technique for Total Hip Replacement is described by Joel Matta, MD, who has brought the Anterior Approach technique as it is known today into the United States. The technique does not cut any muscles, but separates them to allow access into the hip joint. The result is that muscles are spared during surgery.

With these advantages, the Anterior Approach provides the potential for a quicker recovery compared to traditional hip replacement surgery.
