If arthritis or injury is limiting your everyday activities, such as walking and bending, and you still experience pain when resting, your doctor may recommend hip replacement surgery. It may also overcome the stiffness in your hip that limits your ability to move or lift your leg.
Hip replacement surgery is considered after careful diagnosis of your joint problem. If anti-inflammatory drugs or if other treatments, such as physiotherapy, are providing little pain relief, you may wish to discuss this option with your doctor.
