Safe and effective anterior hip replacement

Utilizing the anterior approach to hip replacement, we offer the best hip replacement experience in Chicago


Unlike a traditional approach where the muscles are cut, the Anterior Approach allows the surgeon to work between the muscles keeping them intact. By keeping the muscles intact, the Anterior Approach may allow for shorter recovery, less pain, a shorter hospital stay and fewer post-operative restrictions.

The surgical approach (sometimes called the surgical technique) is the way the surgeon makes their incision so that they can operate on the bones that make up the hip joint. Many surgeons use what is called a traditional or posterior approach (incision through the back of the hip), while an increasing number of surgeons are using an Anterior Approach (incision through the front of the hip). The popularity of the Anterior Approach is rapidly growing because of its measured advantages and improved outcomes.

Consider one such advantage: a shorter hospital stay. Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine uses ANTERIOR ADVANTAGE by DePuy Synthes for its procedures, and clinical studies support that ANTERIOR ADVANTAGE patients experience a reduced length of stay. Moreover, patients spent almost one less day in the hospital compared to posterior approach patients. Patients were discharged almost one day sooner than patients with a traditional approach (2.28 days vs 3.02 days). And patients experienced a 50% reduction in length of stay compared to posterior approach patients (33.9 hours compared to 65.8 hours).

Consider another advantage of our approach: a speedier recovery. Scientific data supports that patients spend less time in recovery facilities and return to daily activity faster than patients treated with other procedures. We can help you perform daily activities earlier in your recovery. This means that you may have more freedom to walk without support, climb stairs, and put on your own socks and shoes, compared to patients treated with another approach. Our patients are more likely to cease the use of a walking aid by 6 weeks post-surgery than posterior approach patients.

A third advantage of our approach is to experience less pain. Anterior hip replacement is considered a muscle-sparing procedure for total hip replacement, which means that instead of cutting muscle, your surgeon works around muscle. By keeping your muscles intact, you may experience less pain early in your recovery than if you had undergone another procedure.

When compared to posterior approach patients, ANTERIOR ADVANTAGE patients have reported less pain at day one, week two, and week six post-operatively. And our patients experienced significantly less pain after primary THA as measured by visual analog pain scores than posterior approach patients.

Hip replacements that make a difference

"What should I expect after a hip replacement?"

With us, patients typically consume less narcotics after surgery than patients with traditional approaches.

Specifically, data shows that compared to posterior approach patients, our anterior hip replacement patients consume less narcotics in the first three days after surgery and are less likely to be using narcotics for pain control at 2 and 6 weeks follow-up. And our patients reported 35% less opioid usage through the first 90 days post-operatively.

Here at Genesis Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, your care and comfort are top priorities for us. So our entire experience is geared around ensuring your peak satisfaction with the holistic process – from start to finish, from first appointment to final physical therapy session.
