The long-term successful outcomes of total hip replacement led to an extension of the surgical indications to young and active patients. To achieve a prompt functional recovery, varying surgical techniques have been proposed. In this study we present our anterolateral soft tissue sparing approach characterised by a lesser dissection of the muscles, a capsular repair and an accurate soft tissue tensioning and reconstruction. The target of this procedure is a full and quick restoration of hip function, reducing the rate of early complications such as hip dislocation.
