FAQ



Weighing the benefits of hip replacement surgery against the inherent risks of a major medical procedure is complex. However, there are some guidelines concerning who should get a hip replacement.  People typically begin to consider this surgery when they have suffered for a significant amount of time with hip problems cause by osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis.                                                                                                                                      
These conditions tend to get worse over time. Since they progress gradually, there is no reason to rush into the surgery. Patients should consider their options and try all other alternatives to see if they help.  Patients can consider over the counter painkillers and over the counter anti-inflammatories like Tylenol to cut down on the inflammation the condition causes. Another option is physical therapy to strengthen the surrounding muscles, giving more support to the joints. Finally, steroid injections are an effective treatment for inflammation because they can be injected into the affected area and last for months.
These can be very effective for arthritis in the early stages, but if they are not working, surgery is the next step.  In osteoarthritis, cartilage in the hip joint is eroded until gradually the bones themselves are in contact.  This can be highly painful, and is harder to cope with using milder treatments. Once this occurs, it is a sign that a replacement is needed.                                                    
Another sign is pain radiating to other areas of the body, such as the groin or knee.  This type of pain is hard to treat, but goes away once the root cause is gone.  In early stage patients, the pain and stiffness may be irritating, but they can still allow the patient to take part in their usual activities including work, housework and leisure. If treating the hip does not reduce the pain enough to allow a person to lead a normal life, it is time to consider surgery. This also applies if the pain is so severe that it prevents you from sleeping well.  It is also best not to wait too long, since if they wait until the problem has become very severe, it can make the surgery harder to perform. Patients should consult with a doctor Finally, there are practical considerations about the timing. Patients should time surgery for when they will be able to take time off work, undergo approximately six week of reduced activity while they are recovering, and preferably have someone to help take care of them. They should also take their age into account, and be aware that the younger and more active someone is, the more likely they will need a replacement hip at some point down the road.
