Hip Replacement in Richmond, VA
Total hip replacement is an extremely successful operation for the treatment of arthritis of the hip, yet there are many ways to have it done. One of the choices a patient and surgeon have to make is the surgical technique employed by the surgeon. There are several “approaches” to the hip, meaning ways we get to the hip itself prior to the replacement. To varying degrees, they all have positive and negative aspects to them, and the decision is based not only on patient preference, but surgeon knowledge, experience, and the overall clinical scenario.
