An anterolateral approach is in use for minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty. This approach uses an intermuscular plane between the tensor fasciae lata and gluteus medius. To our knowledge, although a technique has been reported in a lateral decubitus position, no report has been made in a supine position on a standard operating table. We describe a minimally invasive total hip arthroplasty technique done through an anterolateral approach on a supine position.
