What are the benefits of anterior hip surgery?

Due to the technique deployed in this surgery, anterior hip interventions entail a series of benefits for patients.

This surgery is performed through a small incision made on the front side of the leg. This frontal entry point allows the surgeon to reach the joint easier and avoid cutting the muscles.

As a result of the minimized muscle damage, the anterior approach is often associated with a faster recovery process and a shorter hospital stay. After the surgery, patients typically have to follow fewer restrictions in order to minimize the risk of hip dislocation.
