As one of the hardest working joints in the body, the hip is capable of handling a good amount of wear and tear. Swelling, stiffness, pain from arthritis or other conditions can restrict movement and keep you from doing what you love. Hip replacement surgeries at Jefferson Health in New Jersey are performed by orthopedic surgeons who set the standard of care for hip replacements. If you have severe hip pain or pain that has lasted several weeks, you should contact us.
Hip replacement surgery is usually recommended to those patients with severe cartilage loss, a serious fracture or advanced arthritis, and who’ve not had any luck with other treatments. But it’s important to talk to one of our orthopedic surgeons about what is best for you. Our orthopedic surgeons can evaluate your pain, determine its cause and make recommendations that fit your lifestyle.
