Less invasive hip replacement

Osteoarthritis right hip

Over the last ten years, newer techniques have been developed to reduce the size of the cut made in the hip area and so reduce the potential damage to the muscles and other soft tissues surrounding the hip. The advantages of less invasive surgery are not only a smaller cut but also quicker post-operative recovery time and shorter hospital stays.

Mr Carrington is trained in these newer techniques, and practices a less invasive approach for hip replacement wherever possible.
