HIP

The hip is the joint responsible for the motion between the core and the lower extremity, leading to multiple load forces that affect its activity. Therefore, to provide a normal and painless function, a preserved structure and mechanics are required.

Hip arthritis or osteoarthritis consists of joint degeneration, which, in other words, is the wear of the joint surfaces rersponsible for the mobility of the hip.

At Alai we prefer the direct anterior approach to perform a total hip replacement. This is carried out through the front of the joint and has the advantage of a minimal incision and the lack of need to cut any muscle. As a consequence, a much faster recovery and minimal complications are expected.

Dr. Sandoval has specialized in Canada in the most advanced (minimally invasive) techniques in hip surgery at The Ottawa Hospital,  one of the most prestigious centers in North America, counting with thousands of cases of experience.

Osteoarthritis of the hip

“Hip osteoarthritis is the outwear of the hp joint. Thanks to the new minimally invasive techniques, hip arthroplasty can be performed in a safer and more effective way, leading to a faster recovery”
