    FEATURED SURGERY: Anterior Approach THA

    In a pre-recorded surgery shown to attendees at ICJR’s Winter Hip & Knee Course, Joel M. Matta, MD, from The Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colorado, performs an anterior approach total hip arthroplasty (THA) in a 67-year-old male patient with degenerative osteoarthritis of the left hip.

    The patient has significant shortening of the left leg – nearly 1 cm shorter than the right leg – due to wear of the femoral head and acetabulum. Dr. Matta comments that he will review the radiographs of the contralateral hip intraoperatively to ensure that he is restoring the patient’s biomechanics, leg length, and offset.

    Dr. Matta was joined on the podium at the Winter Hip & Knee Course by a panel of surgeons who discussed the procedure and answered questions from attendees:

    • William P. Barrett, MD
    • Daniel J. Berry, MD
    • Michael J. Taunton, MD
