Hip Replacement Surgery

Total hip replacement surgery, also called total hip arthroplasty, is surgery to replace a damaged hip with a prosthesis (artificial joint). You may need total hip replacement surgery if you break a hip or have severe arthritis. 

The goal of total hip arthroplasty is to replace the parts of the hip joint that have been damaged and to relieve hip pain that cannot be controlled by other treatments.
