When a Hip Replacement Might Help

With the help of advanced diagnostic imaging, we’re able to find the  treatment for your unique needs. For individuals with severe damage, a hip replacement may be necessary. The most common reasons that you may need hip replacement surgery are:

  • Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
  • Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis that results from a hip injury
  • Damage to the hip such as a hip fracture

If surgery is your best treatment option, you can be confident knowing our orthopedic surgeons are trained in advanced surgical procedures, including minimally invasive surgical options. These procedures allow surgeons to achieve a new level of precision designed to help you heal as quickly as possible with minimal scarring. After surgery, we offer a comprehensive orthopedic rehabilitation program delivered by our trusted rehabilitation team.
