When surgery offers a better solution for you, we are highly experienced with minimally invasive procedures, including the newest anterior (front) hip replacement and hip resurfacing. These techniques use smaller incisions, resulting in less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery.
We offer the latest anterior and posterior approaches to hip replacement. Both methods use mini-incisions for faster healing, with several implant options.
