Less Pain, Faster Recovery, and Improved Mobility
Furthermore, patients can typically expect a shorter hospital stay, a better range of movement, as well as significantly decreased risk of hip dislocation. The procedure does not disturb the muscles and soft tissue structures that naturally prevent the hip from dislocating.
Direct Anterior Approach is a relatively new technique in the Southeast Asia region and requires extensive training and expertise. Doctor Phonthakorn Panichkul of the Hip and Knee Center indicates that “Currently, this technique is widely utilized with a high percentage of success in the United States, Canada, and Europe. However in Thailand, with the exception of our team at the Bangkok Hip and Knee Center, this procedure is not as yet readily available. We expect the Direct Anterior Approach to become the standard for hip replacement surgery in the near future”.
