What is the difference between Anterior vs. Posterior vs. Lateral?
Familiarize yourself with pre and post-op precautions. Listen and learn how today’s technology, plus our highly-skilled partners, can speed up your recovery. The panel discusses questions such as:
- What are the differences between Anterior vs. Posterior vs. Lateral approach to the hip?
- What are some of the anatomical pitfalls for all three? Is there a need to take a careful approach with neurovascular structures in mind?
- What are some indications for the anterior approach for a total hip replacement procedure? Lateral approach? Posterior approach?
- Are there any situations when patients fit a specific indication where a posterior approach would not be indicated? Or situations where an anterior approach would not be indicated?
- What is the immediate post-op regimen – the same day of surgery as well as the post-op in clinic rehab after a total hip replacement? Can patients expect those regimens to differ?
- What are the post-op precautions following a total hip replacement? Specifically, anterior approach vs. lateral approach vs. posterior approach.
Smaller incisions, smaller muscle dissection, and less damage to normal hip structures that get you back to life faster, and free of pain. CORA is in your corner with experienced partners, larger networks, and the resources available to deliver exceptional care to you — and uniquely for you!
Which Approach is Better Suited for You?
Part 2 of the panel answers patients frequently asked questions when it comes to total hip replacement procedures. Hear from some of the top doctors in the industry, and listen to their opinions on longevity of a hip replacement, potential complications and how they identify which patients are better suited for certain approaches (i.e. anterior vs. posterior vs. lateral). Plus, learn what sort of activities and sports you can get back to quickly including the recommended timeline for return to activity.
Dr. Rick Lehman (U.S. Center for Sports Medicine), Dr. Fallon Maylack (Esse Health), Dr. Hunter Hamilton (Tennessee Orthopedic Clinics), Katie Stevens, CSMR and Ashley McFadden, MPT discuss these questions and more based on literature and decades of experience.
