Hip Surgery Q&A

What are the types of hip surgery?

Various surgical procedures can address hip pain that has not responded to more conservative treatments. The most common types are hip replacement surgery and hip preservation surgery. 

Hip replacement

Hip replacement surgery removes damaged hip joint components and replaces them with artificial parts. Incisions in your buttocks or the front portion of your upper thigh allow access to perform this type of hip surgery. 

Hip preservation

Hip preservation surgery is a good option when there is not sufficient damage to warrant a total hip replacement. An arthroscopic approach requires only small incisions and slim surgical tools to repair damaged joint components. Ligament repairs are also possible during arthroscopic procedures. 

There are various ways to address hip pain and limited joint motion. That process begins with a diagnostic exam at Premier Orthopedics. 

What is the recovery process like after hip surgery?

Advancements in medical technology have revolutionized hip surgery and greatly improved the recovery process. Your orthopedic team will do everything possible to reduce the risk of complications and pave the way for a successful recovery, but you can also take steps to speed your recovery. 

Embracing healthy exercise is a great way to stimulate healing after any orthopedic surgery. Your specialist can advise you on the type of exercises that are best after a hip surgery. You’ll be on your feet and able to walk within a day of your procedure, and it’s important to stay active as healing moves forward. 

You should also strive to reach and maintain a healthy weight. Carrying excess pounds places undue strain on your hips, and also impedes your body’s innate healing abilities. Choosing a healthy and varied diet can also boost healing by increasing healthy micronutrients. 

When should I consider hip surgery?

Some men and women assume that hip surgery only occurs in the aftermath of a broken or fractured hip. In reality, many hip surgeries address ongoing hip problems that are not a result of fractures. 

If you experience ongoing or severe hip pain, schedule a diagnostic exam right away. Physical therapy or lifestyle modifications can effectively manage many causes of hip pain, and you may be able to avoid or delay hip surgery by taking a proactive approach. 

When hip pain prevents you from enjoying your normal daily routines, it is time to take action. Limiting your mobility can lead to numerous other health issues, and can create widespread problems.
