A Total Hip Replacement Is Just The Start

Total hip replacement surgery continues to be an essential treatment for persons with serious hip ailments. Over 300,000 arthritic and injured patients opt for hip replacement each year. The minimally invasive procedure removes damaged bone and cartilage in the hip joint. Then the surgeon installs prosthetics to reduce pain and restore the range of motion. While surgery has a high success rate, the success of the procedure depends on a proper recovery process.
