Total hip replacement: surgical procedure for damaged, arthritic hip, restoring function and improving patients' quality of life.
Why Choose OIBO? ▶

What is Total Hip Replacement?

Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces damaged or arthritic hip bone and cartilage with metal and plastic components, mimicking a healthy hip's function. Performed under general anesthesia, the surgery involves making a lateral hip incision, retracting muscles and tendons, removing damaged bone and cartilage, and placing perfectly sized implants.

Physical therapy starts on the surgery day and continues throughout recovery. Board-Certified and Fellowship Trained hip specialists treat conditions like osteoarthritis, avascular necrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis with total hip replacement. Symptoms include difficulty walking, instability, groin/hip pain, stiffness, and weakness. Our friendly, professional experts prioritize clear communication and customer satisfaction in addressing hip replacement concerns.


Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure that replaces damaged or arthritic hip bone and cartilage with metal and plastic components that mimic the function of a healthy hip. The procedure is one of the most common orthopedic procedures with over 300,00 being performed each year. Our Joint Replacement experts have helped thousands of patients return to an active lifestyle using this innovative procedure.

After general anesthesia and pain medications are administered and the patient is completely asleep, the procedure is performed as follows:

  • A lateral hip incision is made
  • Muscles, tendons, and soft tissues are gently retracted to expose the hip joint
  • Damaged hip bone and cartilage is removed and the bone is prepared for implants
  • Metal and plastic components are sized perfectly and then cemented into place

The incision is carefully closed and sterilely dressed. The patient is brought to their private hospital room when they are awake and alert.

Physical therapy is started on the day of surgery and continues throughout the recovery with a physical therapist.

Our Board-Certified and Fellowship Trained hip specialists are total hip replacement experts who relieve patients’ symptoms and improve their quality of life.

What Does Total Hip Replacement Treat?

Total hip replacement may be recommended when nonsurgical treatment options do not improve the following:

  • Osteoarthritis. Wear and tear of the hip bone and soft tissue.
  • Avascular necrosis. Lack of blood supply to the hip bone.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis. The body attacks its own hip bone and soft tissue.
  • Post-traumatic arthritis. An accident or injury induces early onset arthritis.

Symptoms patients should pay close attention to include:

  • Difficulty walking
  • Instability
  • Groin pain
  • Hip pain
  • Stiffness
  • Weakness

Patients are encouraged to make an appointment as soon as possible as early treatment ensures symptoms improve as quickly as possible and the condition does not get worse.
