Mr Panos Makrides, a consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Birmingham, is the only leading hip replacement surgeon in the West Midlands to offer the Direct Superior Approach Surgery.
There are different types of hip surgery available. A minimally invasive hip procedure generally means a smaller scar. The direct superior minimally invasive approach is even more advanced because it causes minimal damage to soft tissues (muscles and tendons) according to the most recent scientific evidence. This is because damage to muscles involved with mobility and hip stability is minimal.
