What health conditions are treated with a hip replacement?
Most hip replacement surgeries are done to relieve the pain and stiffness of advanced osteoarthritis. As the cartilage in the joint progressively breaks down and your symptoms worsen, the best treatment is often a total hip replacement.
Dr. Boone may recommend a hip replacement following a severe hip fracture or to treat avascular necrosis. Avascular necrosis occurs when the blood supply to your hip bone is reduced, causing the death of the bone tissue and pain.
