Whether you enjoy spending your weekends on a bike on one of the Red Rock Trails, in your hiking boots at the Devil’s Tower, or with your friends in Downtown Gillette Famer’s Market, you rely on your hips to facilitate easy movement. So when deteriorating joints cause you pain, it may be time to consider a hip replacement surgery. The board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors of Premier Bone & Joint Centers can help. Our highly experienced joint specialists regularly provide Wyoming residents with the treatments they need to enjoy their active lifestyle. We’d be happy to help you determine whether a joint replacement will offer you the relief you need.
Do You Need Hip Replacement Surgery?
Considering how much you use your hips, it makes sense that the protective cartilage that cushions this joint would eventually wear out, making hip replacement surgery necessary. This procedure may provide you some much-needed ease if you regularly experience:
- A grinding sensation when you sit, stand, or walk
- Intense pain that accompanies movement and doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medication
- A limited range of movement
One of our joint specialists will review your medical history, perform a physical examination, and order imaging tests in order to determine the extent of your hip damage. If your joint is still in decent shape, your doctor may recommend you start with non-invasive treatment options to manage your pain before resorting to surgery.
