Hip Replacement Overview

Hip pain can be caused by deformity or injury of the joint, but the most common cause of chronic hip pain is osteoarthritis. If hip pain interferes with your daily activities, despite more conservative non-surgical treatments, your doctor may suggest hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement can provide pain relief and improved mobility for many years.
