Total Hip Replacement (THR)

Dr. Peterson received extensive training in hip replacement while at the Mayo Clinic. He uses minimally invasive techniques including smaller incisions and muscle sparing approaches. His approach is called the Mini-Posterior approach. This approach enters the hip joint through the capsule in the back of the joint and avoids cutting the main hip abductor muscles which are responsible for walking without a limp. The main advantage of this approach is less postop pain, quicker recovery, and less need for crutch/cane. Also their is a much higher chance of walking without a limp after surgery than the traditional anterior muscle splitting approach. Dr. Peterson uses the latest technology and state-of-the art implants and technology to enhance your outcome following surgery. Dr. Peterson's hip procedures include Total hip replacement, Mobile Bearing Hip Replacement.

Hip Resurfacing

Hip Resurfacing or bone conserving procedure replaces the acetabulum (hip socket) and resurfaces the femoral head. This means the femoral head has some or very little bone removed and replaced with the metal component. This spares the femoral canal. Find out more about Hip Resurfacing from the following options.
