In brief: Muscle sparing surg

Min invasive surgery is a bit of a misnomer. Tthe key issue is min damaging or muscle sparing surgery while successfully placing the hip implants securely and correctly.
This is best accomplished through the direct anterior approach. The less muscle damage- the quicker recovery and less pain. This technique allows a more stable implant and more accurate leg legnth determination.

In brief: MIS is a MISnomer

There nothing minimally invasive about removing the femoral head and neck and replacing the hip with metal.
Having said that, there are less destructive ways of accessing the hip joint than those developed in the 1960s.
