If you decide to undergo a hip replacement, the success of your new hip will be in the hands of an orthopedic surgeon. Getting an idea of what these surgeons do can give you a better understanding of this form of surgery.  The term “orthopedic” refers to the musculoskeletal system we use to get around.  Orthopedic medicine has always existed in some form; in earlier centuries advances were made as doctors tried to treat people injured in battle.  The first textbook on orthopedics appeared in the 1700s.  The field was then primarily focused on treating skeletal problems in children, such as through exercise and splints.                                   
Treating broken limbs was a common concern of the field, with the plaster cast invented in the 1800s. Orthopedic surgery was rare up until the mid-1800s; because there was no effective pain control or control of infection, surgery was usually only performed for life-threatening conditions that could be performed quickly, such as removal of harmful growths. Surgical anesthetic and antiseptic cleaning of surgical instruments were discovered in the 1840s. The first hip replacement was attempted in the 1890s, using ivory, but it failed due to infection. When modern hip and knee replacements were introduced in the 1960s, they became a key aspect of this form of medicine.                                                                                           
Orthopedic surgeons undergo 4 years of medical school and a 5-year residency in orthopedics; they typically also specialize in one or more subfields within orthopedics (such as foot, spine or joint surgeries).  Their level of expertise with hip replacements can vary widely depending on how many they have performed.   Orthopedic surgery is the highest-paying for of surgical specialty, and residencies in this field are highly competitive. However, joint replacements are not especially well compensated, and some have predicted that because of this, demand for hip replacement will soon outstrip what doctors are able to provide.  Studies have shown that demand for this surgery is rising: The number of procedures performed in the US more than doubled between 2000 and 2010. One reason may be that arthritis is getting more common, but another reason is the advancements that have occurred, making the implants more long-lasting and in turn making hip replacement a more attractive option.  Older people today may also be less willing to accept that their life is being slowed down by arthritis, and to seek out fixes.  Hip replacement is the 12th most common form of orthopedic surgery, with knee arthroscopy (examination of a damaged knee) being the most common, but it will likely become even more common, making skilled surgeons even more highly in demand.
