Direct Anterior Hip Replacement


Direct anterior hip replacement minimizes time from replacement to recovery. 

Hip pain is not only uncomfortable, it impacts your quality of life. Pretty much everything you do—and the things you enjoy most—can be a struggle.

Community Medical Center now offers direct anterior total hip replacement. With this new approach, the joint is accessed from the front of the hip, so there’s a smaller incision, less damage to major muscles and less post-operative pain. You’ll have a shorter hospital stay, faster recovery and less chance of hip dislocation later on.

This new approach is just the kind of advanced treatment you’d expect from a hospital that’s rated Montana‘s #1 hospital for joint replacements by Becker’s Hospital Review.
