At JOI, You Have Options

  • hip-icon-1

    Traditional Hip Replacement

    This type of hip surgery involves the surgeon creating a 4-6 in (maybe larger for larger patients) incision along the outer buttock, the splitting of the gluteus maximus muscle, and the detaching (and later reattaching of the piriformis muscle and the superior gemeli muscle (2 hip rotator muscles). The head of the femur is removed and a metal stem is placed in the hollow part of the femur, followed by the placement of a metal or ceramic ball on the top of the stem that acts as the new head of the femur. Then the acetabulum (socket) of the hip joint is removed and replaced with a new metal socket. A spacer is placed between these two parts that can be metal, plastic, or ceramic in order to decrease friction within the hip joint. Read More

  • hip-icon-1

    Total Hip Replacement

    During this procedure, your damaged hip joint is replaced with implants that recreate the ball and socket of a healthy hip. This can reduce pain and restore your hip function. Most people take between can take 3 to 6 months to heal depending on age, health status, and prior level of function. But most can return to work as early as 8 weeks post-operatively. Read More

  • hip-icon-1

    Anterior Hip Replacement

    With this type of hip replacement surgery the surgeon actually makes an incision on the front part of the upper thigh, and many times there is no need to cut through muscle. The removal of the damaged joint and then the addition of the implants is similar to the posterior approach. This approach may allow for an earlier return to activities and a significant decrease in the risk of dislocation, but it is also a more technically challenging surgery with higher risks of injury during surgery due to the position the patient must be in and the proximity of a large nerve near the area the incision should be performed.
