What Does Hip Replacement Surgery Involve?

Hip Replacement Surgery Louisville KYHip replacement surgery (hip arthroplasty) may be a viable treatment option for some individuals with chronic pain or immobility that does not improve with less-invasive measures. This procedures involves removing worn or damaged components of the hip joint and replacing them with artificial prostheses that are designed to mimic natural hip movement. Patients who undergo hip replacement surgery typically have an advanced form of arthritis or an issue associated with a hip fracture.

Is hip replacement surgery right for me?

It is important to note that hip replacement surgery is not for everyone. It should be viewed as a last resort for patients who cannot find relief from severe pain with other treatments. In addition to a history of failed conservative treatments, hip replacement surgery may be an option if you are experiencing:

  • Disruptive pain, even when at rest
  • Stiffness that impacts your ability to walk normally
  • Discomfort that makes it difficult to stand up, sit down, and use the stairs

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr Goodin has replaced both of my knees this year with excellent results. He and Carly listen to my concerns, act promptly and work hard to make this journey the best it can be. Carly and Dr Goodin both have GREAT bedside manner and I feel I am in expert care with them.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
