Understanding Your Options for Hip Surgery

Every year, thousands of Americans suffer from some form of hip pain. Many of these can treat their hip pain with non-invasive treatments like drugs or physical therapy. However, others with more severe and long-lasting pain may need surgery for treatment. Doctors usually consider surgery if your pain is severe and interfering with your ability to walk, sit, or stand.

Let iRISE Spine and Joint help you determine if orthopedic hip surgery may be right for you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Different Types Of Hip Surgery

Depending on the cause and severity of your hip pain, doctors may perform one of the following surgeries:

  • Arthroscopy: Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive form of hip surgery that uses a thin flexible tube known as an arthroscope. A camera at the end of this tube provides the surgeon with a visual of the operation. This allows the use of smaller incisions and instruments since the surgeon doesn’t need to make a large opening to see what they’re doing.
  • Joint resurfacing: Also known as a partial knee replacement, surgeons use this procedure to treat cartilage damage when it’s not severe enough to warrant a total hip replacement. During joint resurfacing surgery, the surgeon fits a metal socket onto your hip socket and reshapes the ball of the joint to work with the new socket surface.
  • Total joint replacement: Chronic conditions and severe injuries that damage the cartilage, bones, and other tissue in the hip may require total joint replacement for treatment. In this procedure, the socket of the joint is fitted with an artificial surface and the ball of the joint is removed and replaced by an artificial one.
