It’s the Holiday Season – a time of giving and receiving. And while some people are hoping to get a new car, computer, or simply some tasty candy, many other people are hoping for something even better.
For those of you who have ever suffered the debilitating pain of arthritis of the hip, you’ll know that it is not a walk in the park – so to speak. Symptoms can typically include:
- Joint stiffness that occurs as you are getting out of bed
- Joint stiffness after you sit for a long time
- Any pain, swelling, or tenderness in the hip joint
- A sound or feeling (“crunching”) of bone rubbing against bone
- Inability to move the hip to perform routine activities such as putting on your socks
So many people suffering from hip arthritis are actually hoping for something quite different this year: An orthopedic hip replacement!
Unlike candy or a new computer, an orthopedic hip replacement is the gift that keeps on giving for over 20 years! Often described as one of the most successful operations of recent decades, orthopedic hip replacements can now be performed arthroscopically. But what does that mean? Arthroscopic orthopedic hip replacements (otherwise known as minimally invasive hip replacements) enable our orthopedic surgeons in Palm Beach County to replace the old hip with a new hip with a much smaller incision. This leaves a much smaller scar than traditional open hip surgery, plus also greatly reduces the recovery time.
Our orthopedic surgeons in Boca Raton and Boynton Beach are very experienced at performing minimally invasive hip replacements. Our doctors is Orthoaedic Surgery Associates perform arthroscopic hip replacements locally in Palm Beach County and are available for consultations to assess if your hip needs replacing or not.
