During a hip replacement procedure, your damaged hip joint is replaced with implants that recreate the ball and socket of a healthy hip. This can reduce pain and restore your hip function.

We offer both the anterior and posterior approach to hip replacement surgery. In some cases, we also offer a minimally invasive approach, called a Mini-Posterolateral hip replacement, when patients might benefit from this technique.

This may lead to a quicker recovery and faster return to normal function after the operation.  It also results in fewer post-op restrictions than with other types hip replacement surgeries which many patients see as a real benefit.
