Regain Mobility with Anterior Hip Replacement in Spartanburg

As a leading specialist in anterior hip replacement in Spartanburg, Dr. Billy Marshall offers innovative solutions for hip-related ailments. The procedure involves removing and replacing the diseased ball and socket with artificial implants, providing long-term relief and improved mobility.

Understanding the Hip Replacement Procedure

The hip replacement procedure comprises four crucial components:

  1. The femoral stem fits snugly down the inside of the thigh bone.
  2. A ceramic head that aligns perfectly with the neck of the stem.
  3. The acetabular cup, also known as the “socket.”
  4. The polyethylene liner, or the “plastic bearing surface.”

These components are typically “press-fit,” eliminating the need for cement. This technique ensures a secure and sturdy implant, promising an enhanced quality of life post-surgery.

The Superiority of Anterior Hip Replacement

Dr. Marshall’s expertise in anterior hip replacement sets him apart in the field. This approach boasts several benefits, making it a preferred choice for outpatient hip replacement.

Minimally Invasive Techniques

Anterior hip replacement allows for more minimally invasive techniques, reducing recovery time and post-operative discomfort.

Accurate Implantation

The efficient use of X-ray imaging during the procedure ensures precise implantation of your total hip replacement. This accuracy contributes to the success rate and longevity of the implant.

Muscle-Sparing Approach

Unlike conventional methods, the anterior approach is muscle-sparing, not muscle-splitting. This unique feature speeds up your recovery and significantly reduces post-operative pain.

Lower Risk of Dislocation

Research has shown that the risk of dislocation can be lower with the anterior approach than other methods. This benefit further enhances the safety and effectiveness of the hip replacement procedure.

Suitability for Outpatient Procedures

The anterior approach is an excellent choice for a hip replacement. Its minimally invasive nature and speedy recovery time make it ideal for outpatient procedures.
