good help for good healthQ&Aaskthe doctorwith Dr. Joseph LeithQ:I’ve been told I have arthritis of my hip. I recently saw somethingon TV about different ways hip replacement can be done. I’mcertainly in a lot of pain. If I have to have a new hip,what’s the best way to have it done so thatI can be free of this pain?Darlene, Rockdale, Ky.only way to know for certain whichhip replacement approach is best for youA:Theor if you need a replacement at all is foryou to be evaluated by an orthopedic surgeon. If, infact, you do need a hip replacement, your doctor willtalk to you during your consult about your options.There are two types of hip replacements performed atOLBH, utilizing either an anterior approach or thetraditional surgery, which is a lateral or posteriorapproach. With an anterior approach, the surgeonapproaches the hip joint from the front of the hip asopposed to the lateral (side) or the posterior (back)approach. This way, the hip can be replaced withoutdetachment of muscle from the pelvis or femur duringsurgery, and surgeons can simply work through thenatural interval between the muscles. The mostimportant muscles for hip function, the gluteal musclesthat attach to the pelvis and femur, are left undisturbedand, therefore, do not require healing. Whensurgery is performed using an anterior approach,a special table here at OLBH makes the approachpossible.Duringrecovery from theanterior approach,patients immediately bend their hip freely and bearfull weight when comfortable, often times resulting ina more rapid return to normal function.Not every patient is a candidate for the anteriorapproach. I perform many replacements utilizing thetraditional approach and that approach also has agreat rate of success. My suggestion to you is to makean appointment as soon as possible. The kind of painyou describe does not have to be endured as treatmentoptions are available which can provide you the typeof relief that will allow you to resume your normal,everyday life activities.Each issue, an OLBH physician answers readerquestions.
