In brief: Little data
There is little data which lends superiority to one approach to performing hip replacements (anterior, posterior, etc).
I think with hip replacements being so successful, a patient should first select a surgeon with whom they feel comfortable and then let the surgeon pick the surgical approach and implants that he/she feels more comfortable.
