Get The Facts Behind Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant.  The surgery can be a total replacement or a hemi (half) replacement, depending on the severity of the condition.

When damage causes you regular pain or interferes with your daily activities this may make you a candidate for hip replacement surgery. No longer limited to those over a certain age, the surgery is designed to relieve pain and improve mobility.

Causes may include:

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis

  • Avascular Necrosis

  • Hip Fractures

  • Bone Tumors

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

The decision for any kind of hip replacement surgery is one that should be discussed with a qualified orthopedic surgeon, who can review the options available to you as well as the recovery and rehabilitation involved.
