As we age, our bodies change. Painful, stiff joints can alter your lifestyle and prevent you from participating in the activities you enjoy. At Alexian Brothers Orthopedic Services we strive to exhaust every appropriate treatment option before considering joint replacement surgery. However, if a surgical procedure is the right choice for you, our highly trained team of joint replacement specialists will work to correct problems related to your joint pain.
If you suffer from hip pain as a result of arthritis, osteoporosis, or injury, you know how this can affect your ability to participate in the activities you enjoy.
Hip replacement technology has come a long way in recent years. Older hip replacement techniques could be expected to last 10-15 years, but now, new technology that uses metal or ceramic has the potential to last a lifetime. These joint replacements are stronger, more durable and have an extremely low degree of friction as compared to conventional hip replacement joints previously used.
