Patients needing hip replacement surgery will find compassionate and comprehensive care at Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH). As a leading provider of partial and total hip replacement surgery services, our orthopaedic surgeons perform hip replacement surgery to help improve the quality of life for hundreds of patients each year.
Hip replacement surgery, or arthroplasty, is a surgery in which a damaged hip joint is replaced or restored in order to reduce pain, increase mobility, and improve the patient's quality of life. Surgery is may be recommended after the patient has tried various nonsurgical treatments, including anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, exercise and conditioning, pain medications, and viscosupplementation injections to add lubrication to the joint. Osteoarthritis, a degenerative joint disease, is the most common reason patients require hip replacement surgery.
Surgeons at BWH offer two categories of hip replacement surgery services:
Following replacement surgery, are encouraged to move the new joint, and work with a physical therapist to create an exercise program to build strength and improve range of motion.
