Four Variations

APPROACHES
Standard
Two-incision


Different Approaches to the Hip

 

STANDARD APPROACH

Dr. Allison uses a posterior hip incision as a standard approach. This is considered an anatomic approach because no major muscles are taken off in order to reach the hip. Dr. Allison is using this approach in larger patients who are not candidates for the smaller approaches. It is a time honored and reliable approach which gives dependable outcomes.

 

 
Standard
Dr. Allison only used this incision on larger patients.
