Abstract

Total hip replacement has evolved into one of the most frequently performed reconstructive procedures in orthopaedic surgery today. A modified anterior approach developed by the senior surgeon has been utilized in performing over 3,000 operations in the past two decades. It is a unique and facile exposure. It can be easily applied to primary and revision surgery. Noncemented prostheses have been used in over 1,000 of these operations. This article details the surgical exposure, acetabular and femoral preparation for both non-cemented and cemented prostheses, special considerations for revision surgery, and the clinical results of the experience with noncemented prostheses to date.
