More options for a common problem
Dr. Lindsey specializes in posterior hip replacements for the treatment of arthritis. By individualizing his approach based upon the patients anatomy, level of arthritis, past medical history and the underlying cause of arthritis, Dr. Lindsey is able to customize your surgery and results.
The “Posterior Approach” is the preferred surgical approach in patients with very stiff and arthritis hips, or in patients with osteoporosis. With this approach, patients have post-operative Hip Precautions to follow that prevent dislocation. Studies have demonstrated excellent outcomes, with the Posterior Approach, and low complication rates.
After hip replacements, patients will be required to take a blood thinner to help reduce the risk of blood clots and pulmonary problems.
Surgery is not right for everyone.
If you are experiencing pain, the first step is making an appointment. There might be other treatment options available to you through our physical therapy and rehabilitation department that don’t require surgery. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 608-342-4748.
