With a arthritic, blocking hip excruciating pain in the groin region can be experienced. Normal life can be very difficult. Sport activities, playing with your (grand) children, or simply putting on your socks and shoes have become activities that require a lot from you. Your deepest wish is to regain your normal lifestyle, without any hip complaints.
If it has become clear that a hip replacement procedure would be the best solution to solve your problem, a new muscle-sparing surgical technique offers a solution that is less invasive than ever before. Prof. Corten has further refined and improved the direct anterior approach into the Efficient Direct Anterior (EDA) hip technique. With the EDA hip, the time you have to spend in the hospital is minimized, the surgery is conducted through a bikini-incision and the operative time is minimized to 30-35 minutes. Thanks to the muscle-sparing surgical technique recovery also occurs swiftly. Moreover, the operation leaves only a small scar in the groin region. Normal activities can be resumed in the majority of cases a few weeks after the operation. A new life can begin where you can leave all your worries about your hip behind you. Prof. Corten conducts approximately 450 tot 500 of EDA hip procedures on an annual basis.
