Why Choose Florida Hospital?
Hip replacement, also known as a total hip arthroplasty, is an invasive surgical procedure where a damaged, diseased, and/or infected hip is removed, and then replaced with an artificial unit (prosthetic). This surgical procedure is performed on candidates with hip injuries and diseases that can cause extreme pain, soreness, and/or restrictive movement. Nearly 230,000 hip replacement surgeries are performed per year in the United States. Fortunately, this surgical procedure has a 90 percent success rate. Though middle-aged and older aged adults are the most common candidates that require a total hip replacement, younger adults may undergo this type of surgery to repair a hip fracture. Surgeons at Florida Hospital are trained to screen, test, diagnose and to provide treatment for hip problems, including hip replacement surgery to restore movement and to reduce pain associated with tissue inflammation, tumor, fracture and other conditions.
