Hip surgery may help a patient, depending on the condition that causes their pain. A surgeon can evaluate your case to understand your condition and develop a treatment plan that may include one of the surgical procedures below.
In a hip replacement, a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint. Patients can prevent pain and restore their mobility through this procedure. Individuals who have rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, post-traumatic arthritis, and some childhood diseases may be able to benefit from a hip replacement.
In this procedure, a surgeon can remove the damaged parts of a hip and replace those with implants or a shell that can restore function to the joint.
Arthroscopy is minimally invasive and allows a doctor to see the inside of the hip joint. The surgeon can then repair some damaged tissue and place tissue grafts, as needed. Sometimes, the arthroscopy can illustrate the extent of damage that has happened so that a surgeon can develop an appropriate treatment plan.
Hip surgery may be able to improve your quality of life and your ability to stay active. Contact Hernando Orthopaedic and Spinal Surgery to schedule a consultation with our team of surgeons today.
