Fellowship trained in adult reconstructive surgery, Dr. Tim Conlan is one of Canton, Ohio’s leading experts for hip replacement. He offers personalized surgical solutions to regain your function and mobility with the least amount of downtime.
Hip Replacement Using The Direct Anterior Approach
Traditional hip replacement is performed through an incision on the posterior (back) side of the hip, which involves cutting the muscles that make up the primary support system for the joint. These are the muscles you spend weeks and months rehabilitating after surgery.
With the direct anterior approach, Dr. Conlan makes an incision on the anterior (front) portion of the hip. By accessing the hip joint from this direction, there is no need to cut tissue or detach tendons. Dr. Conlan can replace the hip joint through a natural space between the anterior muscles, allowing for immediate stability following surgery, a shorter hospital stay, less pain, and faster recovery.

Hip Replacement Surgery
Hip replacement surgery, also called arthroplasty, is performed when arthritis within the hip joint has become so severe that the bones are rubbing together, causing pain and loss of mobility. The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. The ball is the head of the femur, or top part of the thighbone, and the socket is formed by the acetabulum, which is part of the large pelvis bone.
Both parts of the hip joint are covered by articular cartilage, which helps the bones glide freely. When the cartilage begins to degenerate, the bones start rubbing together. Surgery becomes a treatment option only after more conservative treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, and cortisone injections no longer provide pain relief.
Hip replacement involves removing the damaged portion of the hip and replacing it with an artificial joint that allows for pain-free movement.
In a total hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced, including the ball and the socket. When performing hip replacements, Dr. Conlan uses the direct anterior approach and Verilast® materials to create the strongest joint replacement possible.
Verilast® Hip Replacement Implants
Traditional hip implants typically last 10 to 15 years before they begin to wear down. But Verilast hip technology lasts up to 9 times longer than the industry standard. With its low-friction Oxinium® coating, Verilast substantially reduces implant wear and the risk of fracture or chipping.
