Anterior Hip Replacement Seminar Set for Monday, May 4

April 15, 2015

ritter_augustWhether from arthritis or injury, hip pain can prevent you from being active and even create additional pain in the back and other areas.

Join orthopedic surgeon R. August Ritter III, MD, at a free, one-hour seminar on Monday, May 4, at 6 p.m. at HealthPoint Fitness in Cape Girardeau, 2126 Independence. Light refreshments will be served. Dr. Ritter will discuss “breaking the tradition” of posterior hip replacement in favor of anterior hip replacement.

Posterior hip replacement can relieve the pain, but requires substantial recovery time. Anterior hip replacement, which involves making an incision in the front of the hip rather than the back or side, provides the same pain relief while dramatically reducing recovery time and lowering the risk of dislocating the new prosthesis.

See if the anterior approach is right for you. Reserve your seminar seat today at 844-482-5833 or visit our Ortho page.
