Muscle-Sparing Hip Replacement Surgery
Muscle sparing hip replacement surgery is a new, less invasive, surgical method that allows Community Hospital hip specialist, Dr. Paul Maitino, to replace hip joints and return patients to their regular activities faster than ever before. This surgery uses a single 3-5 inch incision in the front of the hip instead of the reguar posterior location. The muscle and surrounding tissue is not cut during the procedure, reducing blood loss and decreasing recovery time to only a few weeks. For more information on muscle sparing hip replacement surgery at Community Hospital call Dr. Paul Maitino at 405.680.5633.
