Hueter anterior approach as described by Siguier allows an anatomical approach without muscle or tendon sections. It minimizes the rate of dislocation after primary total hip arthroplasty (1.5%, Sariali)and seems to allow quicker rehabilitation.

The investigators hypothesis was Hueter anterior approach allows quicker functional recovery after partial hip replacement.
