Hip Replacement

Our orthopaedic surgeons have the training and expertise to perform even the most complex hip surgeries. We also treat previous failed hip surgeries, remove existing hardware, and perform total hip replacements.

Our board-certified orthopaedic surgeons have fellowship training in the latest hip replacement surgical techniques, including anterior hip replacements We have perfected methods for the very best in pre-operative and post-operative care, preventing complications and getting the best outcomes for hip replacement surgery.

Connecticut Orthopaedic Institute is also among locations offering the anterior total hip replacements. This minimally invasive surgery for hip replacement allows exposure from the front of the hip joint as opposed to the side (lateral) or the back (posterior). With this particular technique, the hip is replaced through a natural interval between the muscles on the front part of the thigh. The gluteal muscles that attach to the posterior and lateral pelvis and femur are left undisturbed. This lack of disturbance in the lateral and posterior soft tissues also accounts for immediate stability of the hip and potentially lowers the risk of dislocation. Following the direct anterior approach, some patients may be allowed to bend their hip freely and to avoid some, cumbersome, post-operative restrictions.

If you are having constant pain, trouble sleeping, and difficulty starting to walk when rising from a chair, you are probably ready to consider hip replacement surgery. Your hip surgeon will show you the most advanced hip replacement options that are suitable for your needs, listen to your concerns, and always focus on your safety.

We are committed to keeping you fully informed. You will know what expect before, during, and after your hip replacement surgery. You will have a thorough pre-anesthesia risk evaluation, plenty of time for questions, and all the individualized care and attention you need.
