Total Hip Replacement-Anterior approach

Hip replacement surgery, regardless of the approach, involves placing a new ‘cup’ into the hip’s existing arthritic socket and replacing the hip’s ‘ball’ with a new prosthetic one that sits inside the bone.

When the surgeon does this by approaching the hip through the front of the joint, it’s called the direct anterior approach (DAA). The total recovery takes at least 12 months, but we will have you walking on the day it’s performed. Most patients can walk without sticks by 4-6 weeks.
