If you suffer from chronic hip pain, you know how much it affects your quality of life. Hip pain is often caused by arthritis. Damage to the soft cartilage creates pain and limited mobility in your joint. At Parkridge Bone and Joint, we always try to address conditions with conservative treatment measures like lifestyle changes, physical therapy or walking supports. However, if your joints are severely damaged, a hip replacement can relieve your pain.
When to Consider a Hip Replacement
At Parkridge Bone & Joint, Dr. Redish will partner with you to determine the best treatment for your hip pain. Typically, total hip replacement is recommended if you experience any of the following:
- You have severe pain that does not let up with medication or physical therapy
- You stop doing your favorite activities because of hip pain
- Your hip is so stiff, you can’t move or lift your leg
Total Hip Replacement
You don’t have to let your quality of life suffer because of hip pain. After hip surgery, patients feel a dramatic difference in pain and joint function. In a total hip replacement, your orthopedic surgeon will remove the damaged bone and cartilage and replace it with a sturdy implant, usually made of metal. The ball and socket of the implant will mimic the natural motion of your joint. Your new hip will fit together perfectly and relieve pain from worn down joints.
