Hip Replacement Surgery to Return You to an Active Life

What makes hip replacement at Franciscan Health different?
Each Franciscan hip replacement surgery team is made up of board-certified orthopedic surgeons, interventional radiologists, trained orthopedic nurses and physical therapists. Internal medicine physicians are on staff for pre-operative physical exams and screenings. Our experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons participate in numerous research projects to advance in the field of joint replacement.
Benefits of hip replacement surgery
Having a hip replaced used to be only for the elderly. Today, total joint replacement surgery with state-of-the-art materials and techniques – some of which are being pioneered at Franciscan Health – gives patients in their 50s and younger relief from the pain and loss of mobility caused by deteriorating hips. We understand the importance of an active lifestyle and finding the best hip replacement for active people.
The main benefit you can expect from total joint replacement is pain relief, which can be quite dramatic. However, total hip replacement is not the answer for everyone. Some people find hip pain relief without surgery. That is why it is important for you to get a proper diagnosis from an orthopedic specialist.
After hip replacement recovery, most patients enjoy:
- A dramatic reduction in pain-even post-surgical discomfort can be gone within weeks
- Increased strength and ability to use your legs and the ability to build muscle
- Ease of movement - almost immediately and for many years to come
- Enhanced quality of life with the capacity to take on daily tasks and activities in greater comfort
