Abstract

© 2015 Elsevier Inc.. Much has been written and talked about in both the lay press as well as orthopaedic journals regarding the potential for enhanced recovery in anterior total hip arthroplasty. It is our feeling that the evidence regarding this claim is weak at best, and that the approach has a high complication rate in many surgeon's hands. We propose the elements of leading to enhance recovery as it applies to all approaches to total hip arthroplasty and propose alternative means to achieve them.
