Hip Replacement

The goal of hip replacement is to help you get back to an active lifestyle with less pain. In a total hip replacement surgery, doctors replace the diseased or damaged hip with an implant consisting of a stem, ball, liner, and acetabular cup.

Overview

Hip replacement surgery in general is a successful operation. The success of your hip replacement is measured by whether or not you are satisfied with the decrease in your overall pain and the increase in your mobility, as well as the durability of your implant over time.

Causes of your hip pain?

Causes of Your Hip Pain

The most frequent cause of discomfort and chronic hip pain is arthritis. Osteoarthritis (OA), rheumatoid arthritis, and trauma-related arthritis are the most common causes of joint damage.

How to Prepare

In the weeks leading up to surgery, your orthopaedic surgeon may:

  • Restrict and/or supplement your diet
  • Ask you to stop taking certain medications
  • Refer you to a physical therapist and recommend if pre-surgical exercises are right for you

Choosing the Right Doctor

Hip pain is not necessarily something you have to live with. You may be able to do something about it. If your hip pain is interfering with your daily activities, such as getting in and out of bed, taking a shower or tying your shoelaces, this may be a sign it is time to seek help.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. The performance of hip replacements depends on age, weight, activity level and other factors. There are potential risks and recovery takes time. If you have conditions that limit rehabilitation you should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can tell you if hip replacement is right for you.
