Hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty, refers to a surgical procedure during which the damaged bone and cartilage in the hip joint is removed and replaced with new artificial components. A hip replacement procedure may be considered when chronic hip pain and disability have not responded to conservative treatment and interfere with normal daily activities. The hip joint is located at the meeting point of the rounded head of the femur and the cavity-shaped acetabulum of the pelvic bone. It is a ball and socket joint with the rounded head of the femur being the ball and the curved depression, known as the acetabulum, being the socket. The hip joint is one of the largest weight bearing joints in the body. It withstands the tremendous forces that activities such as walking, running, and jumping generate. As one of the most flexible joints in the body, the hip allows a greater range of motion than all of the other joints with the exception of the shoulder. We treat femoroacetabular impingement (FAI), hip bursitis, labral tears, replacement, resurfacing, and iliotibial band syndrome. So if you are looking for a Henderson hip replacement
, we are the leading medical office to call.
Arthroscopic repair for Henderson hip replacement
is a specialty of our orthopedics office. A small incision, about the size of a grain of rice, is made and a scope with a camera on the end is passed into your hip joint. The doctor is able to move the scope around the joint as images are relayed to a large screen. This accessibility helps avoid larger incisions and trauma within the joint. Surgical tools also use the same access site and repair the damage. Recovery is faster than traditional, open surgery, the scar is much smaller, and post-operative discomfort is minimal. So if you have hip pain and need a skilled, compassionate orthopedic surgeon, call Woodworth Orthopedics and Sports Medicine for an appointment.
