Anterior Hip Replacement in France

Hello

I wondered if anyone out there has experienced Anterior Hip Replacement in France, and if you are able to advise the outcome, would you recommend it, and the best way to get started.

    Not done it in France, but if hip replacement in on the table, I can highly recommend it for the pain free outcome.

    I was in chronic pain following Legg-Calvert Perthes disease when I was a kid. At the age of 44, had total hip replacement and it has changed my life: freedom of movement, pain free.

    Be sure to understand all aspects of what is being proposed:

    is the approach anterior or posterior? Why? What are the alternatives?

    Is it a total hip replacement or just the femur head or the femur head and socket?

    What support do you get for rehab?

    What materials will be used and why?

    Sorry I can’t help more with regards to specifics in France. It may be worth finding a French website to ask the same question
