Chronic hip pain is often a life-altering condition that can prohibit you from enjoying once simple activities like going for a stroll, riding a bike, or kicking a soccer ball. If you’re tired of being limited in your daily routine, the joint replacement specialists at North Carolina Orthopaedic Clinic can help. We offer complete hip replacement procedures that can put an end to chronic pain and allow you to return to a normal, active, lifestyle.
Determining if You Are a Candidate
Before a complete hip replacement procedure is recommended for you, our fellowship-trained specialists will provide a consultation to evaluate your symptoms and medical history and determine the best course of action. If they believe that a conservative treatment regimen involving anti-inflammatory injections, physical therapy, and pain medications will provide sufficient symptom relief, they will recommend that course of action first. However, if your condition is more severe, hip replacement surgery may be your best option.
Hip Replacement Surgery
Hundreds of thousands of individuals undergo complete hip replacement procedures in the United States each year. During this procedure, the damaged elements of the hip are replaced with prosthetic implants that return regular, pain-free movement to the joint.
