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.
Advanced Orthopaedic Center physicians have taken time to understand and specialize in cutting-edge hip treatments and surgeries.
When other more conservative treatment options — including medication and physical therapy — no longer provide pain relief, joint replacement may be recommended.
Usually a case manager is assigned to work with you as you move through your rehabilitation routines. When you’re ready for discharge, the decision will be made concerning whether you can best continue to recover at home (the usual procedure) or in another facility where you may receive specialized rehabilitative help. If you do go to another facility, the goal will be to return you to your home, able to move about with a safe level of independence, within three to five days.
At various points during surgery, the alignment, function, and stability of the knee joint are evaluated and required adjustments are made. The prosthesis components are cemented into place, any contracted ligaments are released, the midvastus muscle is reconstructed, and the incision is closed.
