HOW DO I KNOW IF I NEED TOTAL HIP JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY?
If you have later stages of osteoarthritis, a severe hip
fracture, your hip joint hurts when you rest at night, or your
hip is severely deformed, we surgeons may recommend total hip
replacement surgery (Arthroplasty). You will get a two-piece
ball and socket replacement for your hip joint. This will cure

muscles back into shape.
WHAT IS TOTAL HIP JOINT REPLACEMENT SURGERY?
Hip replacement surgery has become one of the most important
orthopedic surgical techniques of this century. Since then,
improvements and advances in joint replacement surgery and
technology have greatly increased the effectiveness of hip
If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture or other
conditions, common activities such as walking or getting in and
out of a chair may be painful and difficult. Resting and sitting
may even feel uncomfortable.
If medications, changes in your everyday activities, and the use
of walking aids such as a cane are not helpful, you may want to
consider hip surgery. You can have a partial hip replacement,
total hip replacement surgery or if only one part of the joint
is damaged, a partial hip replacement may be recommended. If the
whole joint is damaged, an artificial joint (total hip
replacement surgery) can relieve your pain and help you get back
to enjoying normal, everyday activities.
Hip replacement surgery by experienced orthopedic surgeons is
highly successful in relieving pain and restoring movement.
However, the ongoing problems with wear and tear may eventually
need additional surgery, including replacing the prosthesis (hip
revision surgery). Men and patients who weigh more than 165
pounds have higher rates of failure. The chance of a hip
replacement lasting 20 years is about 80 percent.
HOW LONG WILL I NEED TO STAY IN THE HOSPITAL FOLLOWING
HIP REPLACEMENT SURGERY?
Plan for few days stay in the hospital. After total hip
replacement surgery, you will feel pain in your hip, so you will
receive pain medication to make you as comfortable as possible. To protect your hip during early recovery, a positioning
splint, such as a V-shaped pillow placed between your legs, may
be used. Begin walking and light activity the day after your
surgery. Most hip replacement patients stand and walk with the
help of a walking support and a physical therapist the day after
surgery. The physical therapist will teach you specific
exercises to strengthen your hip and restore movement for
walking and other normal daily activities.
