Anterior Total Hip Replacement
As patients age, the cartilage in their hips may deteriorate and develop arthritis. Total hip replacement is arguably the most successful surgery in medicine and is performed to reduce pain and improve function in patients with this debilitating disease. If you have hip arthritis, there are both surgical and non-surgical options for treatment. Dr Beicker can evaluate you and discuss all of your options so that you can make an informed decision as to what is the best treatment available for you. Dr Beicker uses a muscle-sparing approach (direct-anterior approach) to total hip replacement which has been shown to help patients get up on their feet sooner after surgery.
The Restore program at Hill Country Memorial Hospital has been designed to help patients on an individual basis as they proceed through their total joint replacement. Starting with a pre-op class which includes education on what to expect throughout the surgery and recovery process and ending with Restore reunion gatherings throughout the year, Hill Country Memorial Hospital has designed a joint replacement program completely tailored to your needs and assists you in every step of the way. Hill Country Memorial and Dr Beicker work hand-in-hand as you progress through your total hip replacement.
