Chandler's Story

OrthoTLC is providing patients faster recovery with a new approach to hip replacement surgery, a procedure replacing an injured or arthritic hip joint with an artificial joint. Dr. Jeffrey Garrett (Braselton), along with Dr. Michael Gottsman (Gainesville) have specialized training in Anterior Approach Hip Replacement surgery. The Anterior Approach method allows surgeons to access the hip joint from the front, avoiding cutting through muscles and tendons, versus the traditional method which involves making an incision at the backside where muscles and tendons need to be cut. Avoiding cutting through these tissues results in less post-operative pain. 


Not only does the Anterior Approach procedure minimize pain, it also allows a faster recovery period. The patient experiences little to no restrictions regarding his or her mobility following surgery. Patients are often walking on the same day of their surgery and nearly all are able to return to normal activities within a couple of months after surgery.

 

Benefits of Anterior Approach Hip Replacement include:

  • Reduced Hospital Stay
  • Minimized Pain
  • Less Invasive; Smaller Incisions
  • Faster Recovery

Anterior Approach Hip Replacement Surgery is providing patients a quality of life that they weren’t able to experience before. The innovative procedure provides patients the long-term benefits of living life pain-free with no limitations in physical activity.
