The two-incision technique for total hip arthroplasty is a minimally invasive procedure that avoids the transection of any muscle or tendon. This technique has the potential to reduce surgical trauma, pain, and morbidity and to speed patient recovery. Fluoroscopy-assisted, two-incision total hip arthroplasty uses several new instruments that have been developed to facilitate exposure of the surgical site and component placement. Standard implants with well-established designs are used to maintain the present expectation for implant durability.
