Anterior Approach to Hip Replacement
The fellowship-trained surgeons at Louisiana Orthopaedic Specialists provide our patients with the distinct advantage of cumulative team experience in performing Anterior Hip Replacements. This total joint procedure has proven to significantly improve early outcomes and decrease recovery time, allowing patients to return to a normal lifestyle.
NEARLY 80% of the population will experience pain in the low back and/or neck at some time in their life. At Louisiana Orthopedic Specialists, we have built a team of some of the most highly trained back and neck specialists in the South to correctly diagnose, evaluate and treat patients dealing with back and neck injuries.
Your shoulder is the most flexible joint in your body. It allows you to place and rotate your arm in many positions in front, above, to the side, and behind your body. This flexibility also makes your shoulder susceptible to instability and injury.
When our patients are injured, suffer from an illness or simply get older, the cartilage around their joints becomes damaged and the tissues around the joint become inflamed. With time, the cartilage wears away, allowing the rough edges of bone to rub against each other, causing even more pain. Our surgeons are often able to repair minor damage, but in more severe cases a total joint replacement is necessary.
