Traditional vs. Direct Anterior Approach for Hip Replacement.
In traditional hip replacement surgery you can expect a 8-12 inch incision. The surgical approach is side (lateral) or back (posterior). Disturbance of the joint and connecting tissues.
In direct anterior approach you can expect a 4-6 inch incision, the surgical approach is from the front (anterior). The muscles or tendons are not detached.
