Hip Surgery

The Coon Joint Replacement Institute is one of the highest volume centers north of San Francisco performing the direct anterior approach (DAA) for hip replacement, a minimally invasive technique that requires a 3-4 inch incision located at the front of the hip, as compared to the 8-12 inch incision used with a more traditional approach. More importantly, the direct anterior approach does not require detaching any of the muscles or tendons, which ultimately results in better outcomes, more accuracy and a quicker recovery for the patient.

The Institute has earned the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ for Knee Replacement and the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approval™ Advanced Certification for Total Knee and Hip Replacement. It is registered as a Blue Distinction Center® from Blue Shield of California and Aetna Institutes Of Quality® (10Q) Total Joint Replacement Program. The institute is proud of the many awards it has received, including US News & World Report “Top 10% of hospitals in California and high performer in orthopedics”, Consumer Reports “Top rating in surgery safety and outcomes, specifically knee and hip joint replacement”, Healthgrades “Twelve 5-star ratings, including orthopedics, critical care and pulmonary care”, Becker’s Review “Top 1% of hospitals having ‘Great orthopedic Programs’.”
