The total hip arthroplasty has been lauded as one of the most successful surgeries of the 20th century. Over the last three decades, there have been many great improvements and advancements as total hip arthroplasty continues to evolve.

One recent advancement is the direct anterior hip replacement, allowing surgeons a muscle-sparing approach to the hip joint. I hope you enjoy and find useful the following articles.
