Total Hip Arthroplasty

Total hip replacement eliminates the pain in the hip joint caused by hip arthritis by completely replacing the joint with a new prosthetic back in the socket. Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most successful elective surgeries in all of medicine with patient satisfaction scores as high as 90 percent in many cases. Although THA has been performed all over the world for many years, it continues to evolve to be more successful and safer, allowing return to most activities sooner and improving patient outcomes. 

Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most successful elective surgeries in all of medicine with patient satisfaction scores as high as 90 percent in many cases.

The next step in the evolution of THA is implanting the ball and socket components through an approach that stairs the muscles and tendons around the hip joint causing less pain and decreasing rehabilitation. This approach allows us to take a rather large surgery and make it less traumatic giving patients the optimal chance for the best outcome possible. Patients who have a THA via this approach often have decreased hospital stays, need less pain medication, have a faster recovery, and avoid many complications that are common to traditional hip replacement.
