Sometimes called “wear-and-tear” arthritis, osteoarthritis is a common condition that many people develop after their fifties. In 2011, nearly 30 million people in the United States were estimated to have osteoarthritis. It can occur in any joint in the body, but most often develops in weight-bearing joints, such as the hip. Osteoarthritis of the hip causes pain and stiffness. It can make it hard to do everyday activities like bending over to tie a shoe, rising from a chair, or taking a short walk. Because osteoarthritis gradually worsens over time, the sooner you start treatment, the more likely it is that you can lessen its impact on your life. Although there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are many treatment options to help you manage pain and stay active. Dr. Dua will weight all options when helping you decide which treatment is best to helping you get back to your active life style much faster.
Based upon the condition of your hip joint, you and your doctor have several options from which to choose for hip surgery. For total hip replacement, your doctor will remove both the damaged acetabulum and femoral head, and then position new metal, plastic or ceramic joint surfaces to restore the function of your hip. To discuss both non-surgical and surgical options, come in for an appointment today and get treated by a top-rated orthopedic surgeon.
