    What can they expect during the learning curve for the direct anterior approach? To find out, we asked 3 experienced surgeons – Hari P. Bezwada, MD, from Princeton Orthopaedic Associates, Princeton, New Jersey; Tyler D. Goldberg, MD, Texas Orthopedics, Austin, Texas; and Lee E. Rubin, MD, from University Orthopedics, Providence, Rhode Island – to reflect on their experiences in learning the direct anterior approach.
