Total Hip Replacement
Chronic hip pain can result from a variety of conditions – including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis – which can cause the cushioning cartilage in the hip joint to wear away. When this occurs, bones can grind against one another causing pain and inflammation. Total hip replacement surgery deals with these issues by replacing the worn out portions of the hip joint with prosthetic implants that allow for smooth, pain-free movement in the joint.
