Total hip arthroplasty through minimally invasive procedures potentially reduces operative trauma, which is expected to result in improved recovery and rehabilitation. We presently perform total hip arthroplasty using minimally invasive techniques via an anterolateral modification of the Watson-Jones approach. This approach is performed in the supine position and requires sterile draping of both legs. It also involves a modified operative technique which preserves the pelvitrochanteric muscles… CONTINUE READING
