When the goal is to help patients get back to their passions, Dr. Nicholas Ting finds hip replacement surgery to be one of the most rewarding aspects of his career as an orthopedic surgeon.
One of Dr. Ting’s specialties as a knee and hip surgeon is anterior hip replacement. This procedure involves entering through the front of the hip to avoid going through the stabilizing muscles in that area, which can mean an easier, more pain-free recovery. It also can result in a faster return to the activities his patients are missing.
