Orthopedic Care for Hip & Pelvic Bones

Our hips bear the weight of the entire body, which is why chronic hip pain (especially common in active adults) can be debilitating at times. Hip injuries can result from a traumatic direct blow to the hip, a fall, an excessive twisting motion or a bone disease, such as osteoarthritis or osteoporosis. Fortunately, Wake Orthopaedics offers many hip treatments in Raleigh to reduce the negative impact hip pain and hip injuries can leave on your active lifestyle.

Some of the common ailments that are associated with hip pain are:

  • Pelvis fractures
  • Arthritis

Anterior Hip Replacement Surgery in Raleigh at Wake Orthopaedics

After coming in for your appointment at Wake Orthopaedics, our anterior hip replacement specialist (Dr. Harris) may suggest this specialized form of hip replacement surgery to help solve your hip or joint problems. 

Over the last several years, the physicians of Wake Orthopaedics have performed hundreds of anterior hip replacement surgeries and are on the cutting edge of this new, minimally invasive approach in the Triangle.

During an anterior hip replacement procedure, one of our surgeons will make an incision on the front of the hip rather than the back or the side (as in the traditional procedure). The location of the incision means the patient doesn't sit on the incision throughout recovery. The surgeon is also able to enter the incision and spread the muscle rather than cutting and detaching it from the bone to access the hip joint. This technique used during an anterior total hip replacement procedure minimizes muscle damage and has the potential to:

  • Speed recovery
  • Reduce scarring
  • Allow patients to move with fewer restrictions soon after the procedure
  • Help prevent hip joint dislocations after surgery
