Hip Replacement Surgery at Blessing

During hip replacement surgery, you can expect the following steps:

  1. Your doctor removes damaged bone and cartilage from the hip joint.

  2. Your doctor replaces damaged parts of the thighbone (femur) and hip socket with prosthetic implants.

  3. After surgery, you undergo orthopedic rehabilitation to regain strength and mobility in the new hip.

  4. Because bone is no longer pressing against bone, you enjoy pain-free, gliding leg movement again.

Types of Hip Replacement Surgery

Blessing offers the following hip replacement surgeries:

  • Total hip replacement: Your doctor replaces damaged parts of the thighbone and hip socket with prosthetic implants.

  • Revision total hip replacement: Hip implants may last 10 to 20 years. Revision surgery occurs when your doctor replaces worn or loosened prosthetic implants with new ones.
