Direct Anterior Approach for Hip Replacement
If changes in everyday activities, medications, and the use of walking aids are not helpful in easing hip pain, you may be a candidate for total hip replacement surgery.
There are several approaches to hip replacement surgery, including the direct anterior (front) approach for hip replacement, also known as the JIFFY HIP* procedure. Your orthopedic surgeon will be able to determine which approach would give you the best results.
Advances in the technology of hip replacements and refinements in surgical techniques are improving an already successful treatment procedure for treating hip pain. Direct anterior hip replacement, including the JIFFY HIP* procedure, is offering a new option for patients.
