NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark., January 5, 2022 (Newswire.com) - Dr. Samuel Baxter, an orthopedic surgeon at Arkansas Surgical Hospital, now offers bikini incision anterior hip replacements.
This less-invasive method of hip replacement surgery avoids making incisions in the muscles surrounding the hip, resulting in less tissue damage.
Dr. Baxter, who is trained in the bikini anterior hip replacement procedure, says it may also reduce healing times.
"The bikini incision is made in a natural crease of the skin, so the scar is much less noticeable," Dr. Baxter explained. "In addition, current studies suggest that the scar may heal better because of the collagen in the area."
Dr. Baxter sees patients at Martin Orthopedics clinics in Little Rock and White Hall. Patients can contact Arkansas Surgical Hospital at 501-748-8075 for assistance scheduling an appointment.
