How to find anterior approach surgeon
cats27 posted:
I am moving from CA to Michigan (detroit area) in 5 months so that I can have family support for a total hip replacement. I will need to find the best surgeon available who is experienced in the anterior approach. Not getting much online so far that rates MDs.

anyone from there who can direct me to the right surgeon?

Hi Cats,

Doctor recommendations cannot be made on our boards but if you're comfortable doing so, you may want to post an anonymous email address here so that if anyone does have a recommendation, they can contact you directly.

Good luck with your move and your surgery!
