I just hope that this new anterior approach will not have the same complications from the traditional hip replacement surgery. Some of its complications include pain, inflammation, and metal poisoning. I came across this site http://www.stryker-hip-implant-recall.com/ which has detailed information about the problems associated with hip replacements, do check it out.

Well, the real base reason that replacement joint surgery is interesting is that orthopods are still able to perform it after sustaining repetitive motion injury from patting themselves on the back as they smile at the xrays while simultaneously ignoring the patient's patent discomfort.

This is great news because surgeons would be able to perform the operation well. Surgeon expertise is a bid component in the result of the surgery. Although one should also know what implants to use. I have recently read about the problems with all-metal hip implants on the internet and at http://pinnaclelawsuit.typepad.com

This new anterior approach in doing hip replacement surgery looks promising. However, the real problem lies with the hip implant devices used and not with the type of approach. There have been reports about its devastating effects. Do visit http://wrightconservehiplawsuit.com for information about problems associated with hip implant devices.
