TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENTS

Recover from hip surgery faster and get back to enjoying your life.

 

The latest technique in the direct anterior total hip replacement surgery is available right here at Tahoe Forest Hospital, one of the few locations and most experienced in the region offering this special technique, an alternative to traditional posterior hip replacement surgery.

The direct anterior approach provides muscle sparing surgery with less pain, faster recovery time, improved mobility, and faster rehabilitation than traditional hip surgery. The direct anterior approach does not cut any muscles and does not carry the same postoperative activity restrictions or dislocation risks of traditional posterior hip replacements. Using the direct anterior approach in combination with multimodal pain control, patients typically walk the day of surgery, spend only one night in the hospital, and discharge home the following day.

Only an orthopedic surgery practice can evaluate you for a direct anterior total hip, partial or total knee replacement implant or shoulder replacement surgery.
