New hip replacement surgery could speed up recovery

Posted on December 14th, 2011 No Comments

A hospital in Minnesota believes they have found a new way to perform hip replacement surgery that speeds up recovery time for hip implant patients.

Surgeons at North Memorial Hospital in Robbinsdale, Minnesota are using what is called anterior hip replacement.  This type of hip replacement surgery involves accessing the hip joint through the front of the hip.

Traditionally, hip replacement surgeries are done by cutting through muscles along the side or back of the hip joint.  In anterior hip replacement surgeries, doctors are able to move the muscles to the side to access the joint instead of cutting through muscle.

In addition, anterior hip replacement differs from other hip replacement surgeries because doctors are able to X-ray patients during the operation, rather than afterwards.  This technique helps surgeons more accurately position the hip replacement.

If you or someone you know had a hip replacement surgery using the DePuy ASR hip implant, contact the DePuy hip replacement recall attorneys of Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 to learn more about the defects associated with this product.
