Improved femoral instrumentation for long stem surgery provides a femoral drill guide with interchangeable femoral collets, a femoral reamer, and a femoral anterior/posterior cutting block with an adaptable anterior femoral ledge. This instrumentation allows all cuts to be made relative to the long stem component of a femoral prosthesis which will fit in the hole formed by the reamer with the collet and cutting block both oriented on the reamer, and all cuts made by the surgeon will be oriented relative to the long stem or spike component of the femoral prosthesis.
