Doctors at Atlantic Orthopaedic Specialists are now performing hip replacement surgery utilizing the minimal incision, anterior approach. This muscle sparing method allows for muscles associated with hip movement to be retracted instead of being cut, as in standard THR procedures. With reduced trauma to tissues there may be less bleeding, less days in the hospital and potential for a more rapid recovery.
