Anterior Approach Total Hip Replacement

Dr. Tropeano is one of a handful of orthopaedic surgeons in the state specially trained to provide patients with an anterior approach total hip replacement.  The anterior approach in hip replacement is a new and popular option for patients as it means less time in the hospital and a faster recovery period.  The benefits of this approach stem from the fact that the hip can be replaced without detaching muscle from the pelvis or femur.  Using the “Pro F X” special surgery table, the hip is approached and replaced through a natural interval between muscles.  Dr. Tropeano, along with Bryan W. Whitfield Memorial Hospital, are excited to offer this unique surgical technique to his patients.
