FAQ

Diagnosis for Hip Replacement Surgery
While not everyone who suffers from hip joint pain may need total hip replacement surgery, the surgery can improve your quality of life if it has been greatly diminished due to pain and immobility. Hip replacement surgery is a common surgical procedure and is expected to grow as the Baby Boomer population ages. During the surgery, the head of the femur, or thigh bone, is removed and replaced with an artificial ball and socket implant. This can relieve a patient’s chronic hip pain and also improves mobility and stability of the hip joint.
There are various reasons why the hip joint would need to be replaced. The most common reason is osteoarthritis, which causes the cartilage that cushions the joint to wear out, resulting in bone-on-bone friction. This can make the hip joint increasingly painful and stiff. Other conditions also destroy the hip joint, resulting in a need for surgery. Sometimes patients are born with hip dysplasia, a developmental abnormality, or they may have rheumatoid arthritis. A hip joint can degenerate because of infection, injury or the loss of blood to the head of the thigh bone, causing the bone to die.

On your first visit to the doctor or orthopedic surgeon to discuss your painful hip joint, you’ll likely have to undergo a complete medical history and physical examination so your doctor can determine what has caused your arthritic hip. Your doctor may ask you about any traumatic hip injuries or incidences of joint instability, as well as examine your hip alignment and your ligaments. You’ll likely have to undergo an x-ray to determine how much cartilage and bone degeneration you may have experiences. An x-ray also may yield clues to a reason why you’re experiencing pain. It will allow your doctor to see if your cartilage is thinner than it should be, if it’s gone or if it is inflamed. The x-ray also will reveal if the space between your hip joint has narrowed or is irregular, and if there are bone spurs or excessive bone that appears to be built up around your joint’s edges. All of these conditions can make your hip feel stiff and cause you to limit your physical activities due to pain.

Your doctor also may order blood tests or a joint aspiration, which involves the removal of a small amount of fluid from your hip joint, to rule out rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases that may have caused the deterioration in your hip joint. Most doctors will suggest trying non-surgical treatment methods first, leaving hip replacement surgery as the last resort. This will depend on the degree of deterioration you have in your hip joint.
