Anterior Total Hip Arthroplasty
This exciting alternative technique for hip replacement surgery allows the surgeon to expose the hip without disturbing muscular attachments to the bones around the joint. This allows the hip to remain stable after surgery and prevents the need for "dislocation precautions." The approach involves a single, short incision over the front of the hip joint as opposed to the side or back of the hip. The procedure is performed on a special orthopaedic table, which features independent leg spars. These spars allow the leg to be positioned so that access to the joint occurs without the need to remove muscle or tendons from the thigh bone. Dr. Hoover has performed the surgery on a wide variety of patients, ranging in age from the early forties to the mid eighties.
In addition to Anterior Total Hip Replacement surgery, he specializes in Total Knee Replacement, Revision Hip Arthroplasty, Revision Knee Arthroplasty, Lower Extremity Trauma, and Multimodal/Pre-emptive analgesia for hip and knee arthroplasty.
He is Board Certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery. He is a member of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) and American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS).
