You may not realize it, but the hip is an important part of your daily life. Movements like sitting, standing, walking, or bending are all related to the hip. The hip uses a cup-and-ball-like joint that gives you a wide range of motion in multiple directions.
Care and repair of the hip is a constantly evolving technology with many new techniques and procedures created every year. Our specialists at Advanced Orthopaedic Centers are considered to be some of the best in the world when it comes to performing these procedures.
- Have a painful, disabling joint disease of the hip resulting from a severe form of arthritis.
- Are not likely to achieve satisfactory results from less invasive procedures, such as arthrodesis (artificial stiffening or fixation of the joint).
- Have bone stock that is of poor quality or inadequate for other reconstructive techniques.
While most people will gradually increase their activities and return to doing things like playing golf, doubles tennis, shuffleboard, or bowling, you will be advised to avoid more active sports, such as jogging, singles tennis, and other high-impact activities.
