Total hip arthroplasty (THA) through the anterior (Smith-Petersen) approach has grown in acceptance. Here, during five distinct segments of a cadaver dissection, the authors illustrate the basic approach, and then extend it distally and proximally to demonstrate the extensile possibilities, and illustrate the structures that are at risk. Surgeons interested in the anterior surgical approach wil find this material to be relevant and helpful in safe execution of the procedure.
