When is hip joint replacement recommended?
Hip arthritis can cause severe pain and stiffness due to damage or worn cartilage. We consider surgery when the patients see interferon in their activities or pain that grows to the groin area, the thigh, and the buttocks.

Frequently asked questions
- What are the different types of hip implants?
There are different types of hip implants; depending on the case, your specialist will select cemented, uncemented, or hybrid prostheses.
- How long does the hip surgery take?
The hip surgery lasts around two and a half hours.
- Is it an outpatient surgery?
Generally, a night in the hospital is required. The day after, you can recover at home.
- When would I be able to walk again?
Patients with a cemented prosthesis can walk with assistance the next day. If you got uncemented or hybrid prostheses, you would start walking that week.
- Is it possible to have both hips replaced in the same surgery?
Some large hospitals have the equipment to replace both hips. Nevertheless, I won’t recommend it since the risk of trans-surgical complications increases.
- Is it possible to avoid the surgery with joint infiltrations or alternative therapy?
Some cases may improve, but some won’t. Joints with advanced damage will only get better after surgery.
