We rely on our hips for just about all we do. So, when we begin to experience painful spasms in our hip joints, it can greatly hinder our ability to perform even the simplest of tasks, from walking to keeping us balanced while sitting on the couch. If you are feeling pain in one or both of your hip joints, turn to the board-certified, fellowship-trained doctors at Premier Bone and Joint Centers in Rawlins, Wyoming. Our professionals are adept at performing hip replacement surgery and would be happy to determine if this procedure is an appropriate solution for your situation.
What Causes Hip Damage?
There are myriad factors that can cause hip damage. In a properly functioning hip, the ball-shaped femoral head rotates smoothly in the socket-shaped acetabulum, with a thick layer of cartilage and synovial fluid acting as a buffer in between the two. Individuals are often in need of hip replacement surgery because this protective layer wears down due to:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Performing a Hip Replacement
When you visit our satellite office in Rawlins, WY, our hip specialists will assess your condition and determine if hip replacement is the right course of action. During hip replacement surgery, our experts will remove the damaged portion of the hip joint and replace it with a prosthetic ball and joint socket. At Premier Bone and Joint Centers, we use the most advanced techniques and technology to make the hip replacement as minimally invasive as possible. This reduces recovery time and the chance of infection, so you can rest assured you’ll be back to doing what you love in no time.
