This content was provided by Dr. Kelley I am a third generation surgeon specializing in hip and knee replacement. A lot of my patients are coming to me because they are interested in the ABMSparing (Anterior-Based Muscle-Sparing) Hip Approach. Anterior muscle sparing hip surgery has been introduced in many forms but all share similar attributes. Its an operation that avoids cutting muscles so recovery is quicker without the downside of hip instability and special precautions after surgery are not necessary. My approach to patients is weighed heavily toward patient education. We have educational videos to prepare the patient for everything theyre getting into and to understand their disease better.
