Total hip replacements are generally recommended for people who have pain that limits everyday activities. This pain is usually the result of arthritis or injury. When non-surgical options are unable to produce effective results for a patient a total hip replacement may be an option. During a total hip replacement procedure, the damaged bone and cartilage are removed and replaced with artificial parts. There are many different options available to patients. You should discuss these options with your orthopedic surgeon to determine whether hip replacement surgery is right for you.
