Treatment Options for Hip Replacement Surgery in Canada

Our orthopedic surgeons specialize in both direct anterior and posterior hip replacement procedures, ensuring that each patient receives the most appropriate care for their specific condition.

The anterior hip replacement surgery, available exclusively at our Toronto and Calgary locations, involves a minimally invasive direct anterior (DA) approach that accesses the hip joint from the front. This technique allows for a less invasive procedure, quicker recovery, and less post-op pain compared to traditional methods. In contrast, the posterior hip replacement, offered at our Brossard, Quebec location, involves accessing the hip joint from the back, which allows for excellent visibility of the hip structure, facilitating precise placement of the hip prosthesis.

The Right Treatment for Your Needs

While both procedures achieve the same positive outcomes for the patient, the approach selected depends on various factors, including the patient’s anatomy and the surgeon’s recommendation. Both the posterior and direct anterior hip replacement techniques offer similar recovery times and positive outcomes, with a track record of minimal complications.

Our experienced surgeons will guide each patient in choosing the right procedure to meet their individual needs, ensuring optimal recovery and functionality. Regardless of technique, our primary goal is to help patients return to their daily activities with improved mobility and less pain.

What Do Direct Anterior (DA) and Posterior Hip Replacement Surgery Treat?

If you have been told you need a hip replacement due to worn or damaged hip joints, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis, you are a good candidate for private hip replacement surgery at a Surgical Solutions Network orthopedic surgical facility: Clearpoint Surgical Toronto; Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary; or Chirurgie DIX30 in Brossard, Quebec. If you are under age 60 and very active or have a physically demanding occupation, you might be a candidate for the bone-preserving hip resurfacing procedure at Canadian Surgery Solutions in Calgary.

Preparing For and Recovery After Hip Replacement Surgery

It is important to remember that hip replacement is major surgery. We work with you pre- and post-op to ensure you have the local support in place you need. Most patients arrive in Toronto, Calgary, or Brossard the day before surgery. Post-operative processes slightly differ by location but maintain the same high standard of quality care. At our Brossard, Quebec facility, patients are typically discharged the same day as their surgery. At our Toronto and Calgary facilities, patients typically stay overnight after their surgery and are discharged the following day. All hip replacement patients can return home 2 to 3 days after surgery.

Our team of doctors and nurses will work with you to ensure you have a safe and quick recovery, however there are risks associated with all surgical procedures and you should expect post-operative pain and swelling. Everyone reacts differently to surgery and anaesthetic, but in our experience, the anterior and posterior hip replacement approaches allow for faster rehabilitation to get you back to your normal activities as quickly as possible.

How Soon Can You Go Back to Work After Hip Replacement Surgery?

Recovery time varies, depending on the type of work you perform and any accommodations that can be made (such as the ability to sit/stand when required). Most importantly, your recovery time also depends on you – your expectations, drive, and physical recovery will be unique to your lifestyle. Most “desk” jobs can be resumed around 1 month post-op, sooner in some cases. Most physical jobs will need a longer recovery, typically 3 to 4 months.

Hip Replacement FAQ

What is this procedure for and how will it alleviate my symptoms?

Most patients who are suitable for a total hip replacement have been told they have worn or damaged hip joints, osteoarthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis. Pain is the most common complaint, and patients find this “bone pain” is gone immediately following surgery. We offer both direct anterior and posterior hip replacement procedures. The right approach for you will depend upon your anatomy and your surgeon’s recommendation following your consultation. Both hip procedures offer positive outcomes, ensuring optimal recovery and restoration of joint functionality.

What happens during surgery?

Our surgeons use advanced, high-quality surgical implants for hip replacement surgery. With pre-surgical X-rays, they are able to size your joint and provide you with the components that best replicate your natural hip. We utilize the latest intraoperative surgical navigation technology for fast, easy, and accurate implant alignment.

How do I qualify for this procedure?

You will need to complete a pre-surgical patient questionnaire to provide us with your basic medical history. We also require your most recent X-rays. If your medical history and diagnostics confirm you are a suitable patient for the procedure and our facility, we will request a full medical history and physical, along with bloodwork and ECG from your family doctor.

What is the average process like and how long will it take for me to return to my normal activities?

Upon receipt of the patient’s medical documentation, booking the surgeon consultation can be arranged within 1 week, and surgery scheduled within 2 to 4 weeks. Recovery time varies by patient, but you will be up and walking the day of your surgery. Most patients are typically back to their daily activities within 2 to 4 months and specialty sports or lifestyle within 6 months.

How should I prepare for my surgery?

In preparation for your surgery, you will be encouraged to keep moving as much as possible. Pre-hab physio is sometimes helpful in this regard. Our patient advisor will provide you with a patient information booklet outlining pre-surgical exercises for you to undertake to prepare you for the best possible outcome following your surgery.
