Find Hip Pain Relief
At Hi-Desert Medical Center, we understand how debilitating hip pain can be, whether caused by a fracture or a degenerative joint disease, such as osteoarthritis.
When nonsurgical treatments don’t offer relief, your doctor may recommend a hip replacement.
To determine whether hip replacement surgery is right for you, our orthopedic team of specialists will rely on our facilities and diagnostic tools to fully assess your condition and recommend the optimal course of treatment.
Our community environment means you can be treated conveniently close to home, both for surgery and follow-up rehabilitation.
Are You a Candidate for Hip Replacement Surgery?
Common reasons for hip replacement surgery include:
- Osteoarthritis, a loss of joint cartilage that limits movement, causes pain and inhibits daily activity
- Other forms of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis and arthritis that results from a hip injury
- Damage to the hip, such as a hip fracture
Additional treatments, such as medication, physical therapy and cortisone injections, are often prescribed before deciding surgery is necessary.
