Hello and welcome to HealingWell. I am sorry we have to meet like this and I hope your surgery goes well. Here is a link to a comparison of anterior versus posterior approach for hip surgery that may help you understand the rational for why many hip replacements are done posteriorly.
I wish you the best as you face surgery and please know we are all here for you.
