Improve your techniques of the most frequently used less invasive surgical approaches for total hip arthroplasty.

Leading surgeons in the field provide practical technical instruction, including direction on the number of incisions, approach to the hip joint, method of deep dissection, and use of fluoroscopy.

Each chapter covers one of the most important limited incision surgical approaches:

  • Single-incision anterior approach
  • Two-incision anterior approach
  • Limited incision muscle-sparing anterolateral Watson-Jones approach
  • Limited incision direct lateral transmuscular approach
  • Limited incision posterior approach

Issues related to rapid recovery following these procedures are also described and reviewed. This monograph will prove an excellent reference for surgeons performing or making the transition to limited incision hip replacement.
