Dr. Eric Grossman in the News
Dr. Grossman specializes in the anterior approach, an advancement in hip replacement surgery
The major advantage of the anterior approach to hip replacement is the fact that muscular tendons are not detached. In other approaches, tendon detachment and splitting are unavoidable.
Because the anterior approach spares major muscles and tendons, patients are at low risk for hip dislocation and therefore can regain mobility more quickly, and without following the restrictive hip precautions prescribed for the other hip surgical approaches.
