ROCHESTER, N.H., July 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Frisbie Memorial Hospital is now offering the minimally invasive direct anterior approach for hip replacement. Compared to traditional hip surgery, the direct anterior approach is performed without detaching any of the stabilizing muscles around the hip, leading to a smaller incision with minimal scarring, a shorter hospital stay and potentially faster recovery so that patients can return to normal daily activities with less risk of dislocation.
Surgeons from Seacoast Orthopedics & Sports Medicine perform total joint replacement surgeries of the shoulder, hip, and knee (including the ConforMIS custom fit total knee implant) at Frisbie's Total Joint Replacement Center. Frisbie's 'First Steps' Total Joint Replacement program offers a comprehensive, personalized approach to joint replacement, with a multidisciplinary team dedicated to each patient's recovery.
