Many surgeons are exploring the anterior approach to the hip with the alleged benefit of smaller incision and enhanced recovery. In Mr Nakhla’s experience, the mini-posterior approach is smaller and safer with no need for traction or xrays use. Furthermore, the mini-posterior approach is extendible when needed in contrast to the anterior approach. Many of Mr Nakhla’s patients stay in hospital for under 24 hours having a total hip replacement through a mini posterior approach.
