Hip replacement at Villa Donatello in Florence, Italy
For people suffering from arthritis or work related hip pains, a hip replacement surgery might be just the thing they need. The surgery consists of the removal of the damaged hip joint and replacing it with an artificial prosthesis. Depending on the type of the surgery (partial or total) the surgeon removes part of the part of the pelvis that makes up the hip joint and/or the femoral head.

The advantage of the posterior approach is that it gives the surgeon better access to the acetabulum and femoral head. It also preserves the abductor muscles of the joint, reducing the risk of dysfunctions.
The lateral approach procedure presents a greater risk for the abductor muscles to not heal back on, leading to pain and weakness. On the other hand, this method has a lower dislocation rate.
