The primary function of the hip is to support the weight of the body and retain balance when standing or when walking or running. The hip is an important part of the body and, if you have severe physical joint damage, your doctor may recommend hip replacement surgery.
Mat-Su Regional surgeons practice an advanced form of hip replacement surgery called anterior hip surgery. It involves a very minimal three to five inch incision that does not cut major muscle groups. This is very important for faster recovery. It also uses a special imaging technology that allows the doctor to see the surgical area without a large incision.
