Anterior Hip Replacement
Be active and move easily again! We offer a new option for hip replacement - anterior hip replacement.
Anterior Hip Replacement is a procedure that allows the surgeon to make an incision in the front of the leg, instead of an incision in the back of the leg as done in traditional hip replacement surgery.
Because the surgeon is able to enter the body through the front side of the leg, it’s possible to reach the hip joint by moving or separating the muscles and tendons, rather than cutting them as in traditional surgery.
- Faster recovery
- Less muscle damage
- Less weakness
| Schedule an appointment today (717) 263-1220 or (717) 765-3663 and see if anterior hip replacement is the best option for you.
We provide surgical services at Chambersburg Hospital, Waynesboro Hospital and the Summit Surgery Center. We offer a wide variety of minimally invasive surgery techniques to help you recover faster and with less pain.
What is Orthopedics?
The medical field of orthopedics focuses on conditions of the bones, ligaments, tendons, joints, and muscles.
The term originated in Greece where the word ortho means straight and pedics comes from the Greek word pais, meaning “children.” Historically, Orthopedic doctors were involved in treating children who had physical disabilities.
