Drs. Timothy Harris and Russell Norris are using a special approach to total hip replacement surgery -- the anterior approach. By using the anterior approach to hip replacement surgery, they make the incision on the front of the hip rather than the side or back of the hip. It also makes it possible for the surgeon to spread the muscle instead of cutting it and separating it from the bone to replace your hip joint. This can reduce the pain patients feel during recovery. Anterior hip replacement surgery offers the potential for additional patient benefits such as less scarring, fewer restrictions during recovery, faster recovery, & less chance of joint dislocation. Currently only 3 physicians in Wake County are certified to perform this procedure and Drs. Harris and Norris are two of them! Call today to schedule an appointment with them to discuss if an anterior hip replacement is the answer for you.
