Total Hip Replacement
Traditional Hip Replacement Surgery
If you have severe, debilitating osteoarthritis, other arthritic conditions, or have been diagnosed with osteonecrosis, or a hip fracture, a total hip replacement may be an appropriate treatment for your condition.
Monmouth’s joint replacement specialists perform total hip replacement through two methods: traditional hip replacement surgery or minimally invasive hip replacement surgery.
A traditional total hip replacement requires an incision of approximately five to eight inches and allows the surgeon to see the diseased or damaged hip joint and replace it directly, by separating muscles and tendons.
Traditional hip replacement surgery is a highly successful and reliable method of hip replacement. A total hip replacement through traditional surgery commonly involves a short hospital stay of three or four days, as well as two or three months of physical therapy and rehabilitation.
