I agree with the finding a good surgeons advice. I also found these surgeons on YouTube that do a great job of discussing THR approaches and outcomes to help educate you https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4ukJyPfYu8lRj_Pl8tshJc5FAfdENes_
My story is both hips replaced over the past four years. I had them replaced by a surgeon that likes the posterior approach because he feels he can get a more precise fit. I was back running on my first hip at 6 months and put in 2500 miles before having my second hip replaced in Feb of this year. At five months I am now jogging 5 minutes and walking 1 minute for 30 minutes building back to running and racing triathlons in September.
I hope the videos by the two doctors help in your replacement journey.
