Why You Should Invest in a Total Hip Replacement

Hip surgery might feel like a big step for an orthopedic patient, and it certainly can be. The decision of whether to proceed with a total hip replacement is a big deal, but is something that should be seriously considered if you are suffering from hip troubles. Here’s why!

Pain, Pain, Go Away!hip_surgery

Whether your hip issues are related to arthritis, osteoporosis, injuries, or genetics, the pain that goes with any of these can be unbearable. From morning until night you may be suffering to some degree with every step, turn, and motion. How long have you had to build your life around managing your hip pain? After your hip surgery, the slight discomfort you’ll feel as you recover and rehabilitate is small potatoes compare to what you’ve already been through. Once this temporary recovery pain passes, you’ll be amazed at how wonderful you feel!

Get Back to Living

Consider all of the routines and activities in your day and in your lifestyle, and compare it to the life you led before your hip trouble began. Perhaps you can’t even recall the time before you began to sacrifice the activities you loved because of pain or difficult mobility. Your quality of life and activity has more than likely been cut down significantly since your problem began. A total hip replacement is a great step to getting you back on your feet in comfort, and to being able to enjoy all of those events and adventures you’ve had to give up.

Reduce Medication

Dealing with hip trouble probably has meant various pain medications, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, and so on–which all take a serious toll on your body AND on your wallet.  Rather than continuing to pump drugs into your system, hip surgery can resolve the problem and get you back to good health with minimal need for pain management or aggressive chemicals.

Of course hip surgery is a major life event, but the potential for improvement to your life is so great that the benefits often outweigh the risks. Work with us today to see what this procedure can do for you.
