How Does a Hip Replacement Surgery Work?

If you have tried many different kinds of treatment to combat your hip pain and feel as though your journey in life is simply getting unbearable because of the aching, stiffness, and swelling, maybe it’s time you consider a hip replacement (arthroplasty).

The results from hip replacement surgery could give you the answers you’ve been looking for:

Our doctors at MCJR are the leaders in anterior hip surgery. We use modern anesthesia techniques and this minimally invasive technique, which allows you to return home the day of your surgery!

“During a traditional hip replacement, which lasts from 1 to 2 hours, the surgeon makes a 6- to 8-inch incision over the side of the hip through the muscles and removes the diseased bone tissue and cartilage from the hip joint, while leaving the healthy parts of the joint intact. Then the surgeon replaces the head of the femur and acetabulum with new, artificial parts. The new hip is made of materials that allow a natural gliding motion of the joint.”

– The NIH (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal Skin Disease)

Our patients rave about the difference that a hip replacement has made in their lives. Making the decision to get hip replacement surgery will change life as you know it by relieving you of the constant pain and stiffness. Imagine being able to do all of the activities you’ve always loved without discomfort. Don’t let arthritis get the best of you – get the best quality and care possible from us here at MCJR!

If you have more questions about any part of the hip replacement process, or would like to schedule a preoperative visit, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 317-455-1064.
