Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip Replacement surgery is an operation to replace the damaged hip joints in the body. Common cause for this type of procedure to be needed can be caused from hip injury or disease, articular cartilage undergoes degeneration and wears away.

The hip joint surfaces become rough and irregular resulting in hip pain and stiffness. Commonly known as “arthritis” but it has many causes. The onset of hip pain is gradual and, initially, it occurs only after higher levels of physical activity. Hip pain can gradually increases and may become present at rest as well. Physical disability includes a limp, muscle spasm, and decreased range of motion with increasing stiffness. There have been many advances to the various prosthetic designs and types of procedures that surgeons can now use for hip replacement. Please call us to learn more about what is right for you.
