Hip Replacement
 
   The hip joint is vulnerable to ligament and cartilage damage from trauma such as sports injury, fall, or car accident.
These injuries and the wear and tear of normal aging may develop into osteoarthritis. The hip is also a common site for rheumatoid arthritis.

Joint diseases such as these may result in stiffness, swelling, tenderness, and pain in the hip. This causes difficulty with performing even the simplest daily activities.

Here at Chestertown Orthopedics we can evaluate your medical history, range of mobility, walking ability, and joint condition. in some cases we may recommend replacement for one or both of your joints with artificial materials made from metal and plastic. This replacement is called a "hip joint prosthesis." It will allow you to regain movement and will eliminate most of the pain.

Before surgery, it may be beneficial to learn how to perform specific exercises that will aid in the restoration of mobility after your surgery. You may also be taught to use a walking aid that you may temporarily use while your hip heals from the surgery.


Here at Chestertown Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we are more than equipped to answer any questions you may have concerning hip replacement, since we perform this surgery on a regular basis. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions
