Minimally invasive surgical approaches for total hip replacement, such as the modified Smith-Petersen approach, have been reported to be advantageous over alternative techniques because of reduced soft tissue damage and improved immediate postoperative rehabilitation. This study compares the advantages of the Smith-Petersen approach against the lateral Hardinge approach for femoral neck fractures in geriatric patients.
