How Do I Know if I Need a Hip Replacement?

Your hips allow you to perform a wide range of activities. However, when pain, discomfort, and stiffness threaten your way of life, it may be time to consider hip replacement surgery. Of course, not all types of hip pain require surgical intervention. At the Orthopaedic Institute of Central Jersey, our extensively trained orthopaedic surgeons will examine your concern, discuss your daily experience, and develop a treatment plan that best suits your needs, which may be a non-surgical approach.

Hip arthritis can occur over time due to gradual wear and tear, an inflammatory disease, or as a result of an injury to the area. The pain may not always seem to arise from the hip, but may feel like thigh or even knee pain. If arthritis is causing you enough pain and interfering with your normal duties at work or at home, or if you can’t sleep through the night without taking medication, a minimally invasive or total hip replacement may be able to restore your function, decrease or eliminate your discomfort, and elevate your quality of life.

We will begin any treatment program with the least invasive methods first and work up to more advanced modalities as required. To determine if a hip replacement may improve your quality of life, to learn more about the available treatment options for hip arthritis, or to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced surgeons, please contact us today.
