I find this new technique very helpful especially for patients who are on the go and may want shorter recovery period. As I browse the web, I came into a site that talks about complications of hip replacement. Patients are complaining of discomfort shortly after the operation, period way sooner than what was expected. You can read it here http://www.hiprecalllaw.com .

A faster recovery for every surgery would be nice and what everyone would want. However, in hip replacement surgery, aside from the technique, you should also find the time to discuss with your doctor the kind of hip implant you want. According to this website http://www.rotlaw.com/depuy-asr/ , there have been many problems or complications associated with metal-on-metal hip implants. You should also be careful about letting your surgeon choose the kind of implant because one of the articles in this website discusses how the US Department of Justice had punished medical device manufacturers for paying orthosurgeons to promote their products among their clients.

Indeed I have read that the anterior hip replacement surgery provides for a faster healing. However, not all are advised to undergo it. Also, if the hip implant is defective, whatever technique of surgery used, it won't stop the complications which I've read on this website http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com . So it pays to be involved in all aspects of your surgery such as in choosing what kind of implant you want.

Though still uncommonly used in the United States, the popularity of the anterior approach for total hip replacement is rapidly growing because of its definite advantages for patients, even those in need of bilateral procedures. Rehabilitation is simplified and accelerated, dislocation risk is reduced, leg length is more accurately controlled, and the incision is small. One specific complication is injury to a skin nerve, the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve, which is adjacent to the incision made for the anterior approach hip replacement. Injury to this nerve, can lead to pain and abnormal sensations along the front and side of the thigh. This occurs very infrequently.

This is another good news about the anterior method of surgery and it may seem that this procedure may come out the best in this type of surgery. Hopefully, this may lower the chances of complications involving hip surgeries. It would be nice to know the results of hip surgeries involving metal hip implants which is very controversial right now. If failure rates are lowered with this method, then the anterior type of surgery must be encouraged. For comparison, you may check DePuy ASR hip lawsuit information center for data on failures using metal-on-metal implants.
