Hip damage is caused by a number of conditions and injuries that require a hip replacement to restore normal function. Related conditions that require a total hip replacement and a hemi hip replacement (hemiarthroplasty) are hip arthritis, hip fracture, hip joint tumor, chronic pain, Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, degenerative joint disease, infections, and hip deformities. Patients are advised to request information of hip conditions to make an informed decision.
Doctors at Florida are trained to identify related conditions that may require a total hip replacement or a hemi hip replacement (hemiarthroplasty) to possibly relieve pain and improve normal function. Schedule an appointment at Florida Hospital with a specialist to determine if a related hip condition is treatable.
