New Jersey Hip Replacement

Treatment for chronic hip pain

Hip replacement surgery is one of the most complex joint replacement surgeries and should only be considered after less-invasive treatments have been ruled out. There are several different kinds of hip replacement procedures, and our facilities have specially-trained surgeons capable of performing a variety hip procedures.

Overview of hip replacement surgeries:

  • Anterior approach total hip replacement – In this procedure, surgeons access the hip through an incision in the front of the hip to avoid gluteal muscles. This is a preferred approach to hip replacement because it allows surgeons to use a naturally occurring space between muscles in order to access the joint. With this approach, patients should be able to bend their hip freely right after surgery.
  • Posterior approach total hip replacement – This hip surgery makes an incision in the back of the hip. It is a traditional and highly successful approach to hip surgery that allows the surgeon a clear view of the diseased portions of the joint as they perform the operation. Recovery from this procedure can take three to four months and requires physical therapy.
  • Minimally invasive total hip replacement – Advancements in medical technology have made minimally-invasive hip replacements possible. These state-of-the-art surgery techniques only require a few small incisions, which reduces patient blood loss, discomfort, and recovery time. Surgeries are performed using x-ray guided imaging technology, instead of cutting completely into the surgical area.
  • Hip resurfacing – This is a less invasive treatment for hip pains that do not require total hip replacement surgery. In the procedure, the damaged and arthritic components of the hip are cut out and replaced with artificial parts made of plastic or metal. This procedure has less risks than total hip replacement and recovery, in most cases, only takes one to three months of physical therapy.
  • Hip arthroscopy – this is a minimally invasive procedure performed with a small camera equipped with microsurgical tools. During the operation, a surgeon-operated camera makes its way to the inflamed tissue and repairs damaged tissue and cartilage. This is a relatively simple hip procedure that can be done on an outpatient basis. Normal function generally returns within ten days, and sports activities can be resumed as early as three to four weeks.

Our team will go over all the pros and cons of a procedure before confirming your hip surgery appointment. If you are a candidate for hip surgery, we will be by your side through the entire process to help you with pre-surgery preparation and post-procedure recovery.

Patient Stories

  • Before my surgeries, it was increasingly more difficult to walk, to exercise, to ski because of the pain. Consequently, the knee replacement surgery was like a miracle to me.
