The Hip and Pelvis Institute is led by medical director Joel Matta, M.D. who has pioneered the anterior approach for hip replacement in the U.S. and Andrew Yun, M.D. medical director for total joint replacement.

The Institute and affiliated surgeons perform more than 1,000 hip replacements every year and continue to be recognized locally, nationally and internationally as pioneers for hip replacement; and for their work with patients who suffer pelvic fractures. The Institute is dedicated to scientific advancement in all areas of hip replacement surgery.

The surgeons at the Hip and Pelvis Institute use the anterior approach for most hip replacement cases for a few key reasons:

  • Preservation of the muscle attachment
  • More accurate positioning of the hip in the socket
  • More accurate leg length
  • Less pain and a quicker recovery – leading to less time in the hospital
