Many people suffering with arthritis, hip pain, stiffness and limited hip movement can now choose minimally invasive surgery for hip replacement. The anterior approach to hip replacement surgery allows the surgeon to reach the hip joint from the front of the hip as opposed to the side or the back of the body. This way, the hip can be replaced without detachment of muscle from the bones during surgery. The surgeon can simply work through the natural interval between the muscles. Since the muscles are left undisturbed during surgery, they do not require a healing process, reducing the overall recovery time for the procedure.

Dr. Nordland specializes in treating patients of all ages. He provides treatment for arthritis care, arthroscopy of the ankle, elbow, knee, wrist and shoulder, fracture treatment, pediatric orthopedic surgery, sports medicine, total knee and hip joint replacements, and partial knee replacements.

Attending the presentation will give guests an opportunity to meet Dr. Nordland, have their joint replacement questions answered, and view the facility and physical rehabilitation areas. To learn more, visit
