Understanding Total Hip Replacement Surgery

Conditions that can damage the hip joint, sometimes making hip replacement surgery necessary, include:

  • Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, & Osteonecrosis


You might consider hip replacement if you have hip pain that:

  • Persists, despite pain medication
  • Interferes with your sleep
  • Worsens with walking, even with a cane or walker
  • Makes it difficult to rise from a seated position
  • Affects your ability to go up or down stairs
  • Makes it difficult to get dressed


After Your Procedure:

Some people can go home the same day, but most are admitted to the hospital for one or two nights.
