Anterior Hip Replacement

Dr. Stuart Blankenship of Highlands Orthopaedics, is now offering Anterior Muscle Preserving Hip Replacement. This advanced technique helps to preserve the muscle and is a modern, innovative alternative to traditional hip replacement surgery. This procedure, unlike traditional hip replacement,

  • Improved mobility

If you have any of the following symptoms, Anterior Muscle Preserving Hip Replacement might be right for you:

  • Stiff or swollen hips
  • Hip pain in rainy weather
  • Hip pain that prevents sleep
  • Hip pain during and after exercise
  • Your hip stiffens from sitting in a car
  • Trouble walking
  • You're no longer as mobile as you'd like to be

  • Medication and a cane don’t provide relief
  • A previous hip injury
