Hip Replacement

  • Minimally-invasive anterior approach

The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that is designed to support a lot of weight as we ambulate, run, jump and perform our activities of daily living. Unfortunately, the hip joint can see enough stress over a lifetime that it loses the slippery cartilage lining that allows for a smooth and pain free joint. When this happens, it is called arthritis of the hip. With enough time, this leads to bone rubbing against bone which produces a painful, rough and restricted hip joint. While there are multiple treatment options to address hip arthritis, the definitive treatment or cure for this condition is a hip replacement.

Other conditions which are treated with a prosthetic hip include, avascular necrosis of the hip, hip fracture, and certain tumors of the bone surrounding the top of the femur bone.
