Dr. Kelly Interview, Colorado PDF Print E-mail

Interviewed by Vicky Marlow February 7, 2008

What approach do you choose to use the posterior approach or anterior and why?
I use the posterior approach to the hip for resurfacing arthroplasty for a couple of reasons. It is felt to be a 'muscle sparing' operation which in younger and more active patients is advantageous. The other reason is that it is the approach with which I am most familiar. It gives me the ability to place the components in their appropriate location/alignment with the best visualization. I believe that either approach is acceptable and that a surgeon should use the approach that is most familiar/comfortable for them to implant the prostheses appropriately.

Dr. Clarke Interview, Syracuse, NY PDF Print E-mail

Interviewed by Vicky Marlow March 13, 2008

1.) What approach do you choose to use the posterior approach or anterior and why?
I use the posterior approach because it provides the best exposure for me and because it has been associated with excellent results for hip resurfacing. I have, however, used other approaches in the past including the antero-lateral approach and a less invasive medial approach through an incision hidden in the groin.
