Doctors recommend hip replacement surgery when hip pain and loss of function become severe and when medicines and other treatments no longer offer any relief from the pain. Hip Replacement Surgery is recommended when:
• you have persistent hip pain that does not respond to other treatments and/or
• mobility in your joint becomes so restricted that day-to-day tasks such as walking are very difficult or impossible
Common causes of Hip pain include:
• Osteoarthritis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
