The North Memorial Difference

  • We lead the way in anterior hip surgery. At North Memorial, we’re leading the way in anterior hip replacement – a new type of hip replacement surgery that is less invasive than traditional total hip replacement. Our surgeons have performed more anterior total hips than any other hospital in the state.
  • Our surgeons do more anterior total hip replacement surgeries. We have averaged more than 100 surgeries per year – that’s nearly 600 surgeries – since 2008.

At North Memorial, our approach to total hip replacement is unique. Our surgeons perform anterior hip replacement, an innovative technique that minimizes the pain and time it takes to recover after surgery for patients who qualify.

This approach allows the surgeons to reach the hip joint in a way that leaves the most important muscles for hip function undisturbed and, therefore, does not require the lengthy healing process as traditional surgery.

With anterior hip replacement, patients benefit from:

  • A faster return to a normal stride
  • Increased hip stability
  • More accurate prosthesis placement and
  • A shorter hospital stay.

North Memorial’s Joint Replacement Center has performed hundreds of anterior hip replacements and can help you determine if this option is right for you.
