Posterior Hip Replacement

For patients undergoing a "traditional" hip replacement, a posterior approach is used to access the diseased hip joint, remove and resurface arthritic bone and implant the replacement joint. A prosthetic joint is specially selected by the surgeon to match the patient's anatomy.

The Joint Replacement Center surgical team, led by the skilled surgeons at Maine Medical Partners – Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, perform more hip replacement surgeries than any other hospital in Maine.
