Direct Anterior Approach is a minimally invasive surgical approach where a surgeon makes a smaller incision on the front of the hip (near the groin).
Unlike traditional surgical techniques, this approach works between the muscles versus cutting or detaching them. This may result in more stability for the new joint, less likelihood of dislocation and increased long-term success. Other possible advantages include earlier recovery with less pain and fewer restrictions after surgery.
This type of hip surgery is not the best option for everyone. Please talk with your surgeon about what options will be the most successful for you.
