Hip pain shouldn’t keep you from doing the things you love. Some patients are able to manage their condition non-surgically, however, it’s time to see a specialist if the pain becomes debilitating. Total hip replacement used to be the only solution for those living with pain caused by osteoarthritis. Now, advancements in hip replacement procedures allow you to return to doing all of your favorite activities.
Hip Replacement Procedures
Rebound’s surgeons have extensive experience with joint replacement and offer the following treatments to our patients with hip pain due to osteoarthritis.
Total Hip Resurfacing
Hip Resurfacing is a technique designed for young patients with hip arthritis that preserves more of the natural bone around the hip. Some patients report fewer activity restrictions and a more natural feeling joint. One of Rebound’s surgeons has done over 500 hip resurfacing procedures, more than any other doctor in the region.
Total Hip Replacement
Considered the “gold standard” surgical procedure for treatment of hip arthritis, total hip replacement can relieve pain and improve mobility. Rebound offers several types of hip replacement procedures including:
- Direct Anterior Approach for Total Hip Replacement: This technique provides the potential for less pain and faster recovery. Typically, surgeons will be comfortable allowing return to activity without concern for dislocation after this approach.
- The Anterolateral Approach: This method is associated with very low dislocation rates and excellent return to function and boasts a long track record of excellent long-term results.
- The Posterior Approach: This method also minimizes tissue trauma around the hip. Once associated with higher rates of dislocation, this approach offers excellent return to function without undue concern for dislocation.
- MAKOplasty Total Hip Arthroplasty: This robotic procedure is the latest hip replacement method. During surgery, the robotic arm guides the surgeon in preparing the bone and positioning the implants. Real-time information and images allow the surgeon to know and control accurate implant placement.
