Indeed, the anterior mehtod of hip surgery has been receiving good feedbacks from surgeons and patients. With the help of accessories such as specialized tables, hip replacement can be significantly improved. The only possible problem may arise if the implant used may be that of the metal-on-metal implant such as the DePuy ASR hip systems since failurer rates have been very alarming. Even with the best surgical method, complications may still arise if the product itself is defective. More on the issue of metal implants can be learned in depuysettlements. com
