Total Hip Replacement
This minimally invasive surgical procedure involves making a 3-4 inch incision at the front of the hip to replace the hip joint. Advantages over traditional hip replacement, where an incision is made on the side or back of the hip, may include reduced muscle damage and pain, as well as faster recovery.
Revision Total Hip Replacement
While the majority of hip replacements are successful and long-lasting, some replacements fail, and a second surgery – or revision total replacement – must be performed. In revision, some or all of the original implants are replaced.
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that uses small, pencil-thin instruments, including a camera, to diagnose and treat the hip.
A fracture is a broken bone. Hip fractures usually involve a break in the upper quarter of the femur (thigh) bone. Surgery is usually required to repair most hip fractures.
