A variety of minimally invasive approaches to hip surgery in combination with multimodal anesthesia techniques and rapid rehabilitation can facilitate early discharge after total hip arthroplasty (THA). Hip replacement can be performed as outpatient surgery using the surgical technique of THA through a modified abductor-sparing Watson-Jones (anterolateral) approach, along with a comprehensive clinical pathway. One hundred thirteen sequential patients were treated with primary THA completed by… CONTINUE READING
