Total Hip Replacement

Your hip helps you perform many activities, such as walking, climbing stairs and even lying in bed. Experiencing hip pain can severely limit or prevent you from being active. To get you back to your normal routine and enjoying life, your doctor may recommend total hip replacement surgery. Every year, more than 200,000 people have hip replacement surgery.

Over time, your pain should decrease, and your hip function should improve. Your surgeon will do the easy part; it's up to you to do the rest - physical therapy and following your surgeon's instructions.

Total Hip Replacement Surgery Options

Norton Orthopedic Care offers several surgical approaches to total hip replacement. These include:

  1. Minimally invasive (also known as less invasive)
  2. Anterior approach (from the front of the hip)
  3. Posterior approach (from the back of the hip)

Norton Joint Care: Education to Empower Your Journey

We understand joint replacement surgery may sound intimidating. If surgery has been recommended for you, you may have many questions. The Norton Joint Care program includes comprehensive education and rehabilitation components, so you will know what to expect before, during and after surgery. Participation in the program typically results in less pain and a quicker recovery time. Teams of caregivers - including physicians, coaches, nurses, care managers, physical therapists, music therapists and others - are dedicated to helping you return to your full potential with your new joint.
