Minimally-Invasive Approaches to Hip Replacement
October 28, 2015
For those suffering from severe hip pain, surgery may be the best treatment option. Depending on factors, such as age and overall condition of your hip, there are several surgical treatment options.
When possible, Penn Musculoskeletal surgeons perform minimally-invasive hip replacement surgery. The smaller incisions allow the surgeon access to the hip joint while preserving muscle function, enabling patients to return more quickly to their favorite activities.
In the video below, Charles L. Nelson, MD, Chief of Penn's Joint Replacement Service, discusses minimally-invasive approaches to hip replacement surgery and how they are performed at the Penn Musculoskeletal Center.
