What is Hip Joint Pain?
The ball and socket of the hip joint bears the brunt of your body weight, allowing you to do everyday activities like walking, climbing stairs, bending and turning. The cartilage and bones in the hip can break down due to fractures, arthritis and wear and tear over time—leading to debilitating joint pain. If symptoms continue despite physical therapy and anti-inflammatory medicine, replacement of the hip joint may be the best solution.
About Hip Joint Replacement
When Dr. Robert A. Kayal and his team of highly skilled New Jersey orthopedic surgeons perform your hip joint replacement, the procedure is less traumatic to the body. Your surgeon will make relatively small cuts to the side of the joint to remove damaged or diseased cartilage and bone. This cartilage and bone will then be replaced with implants or artificial materials. Minimally invasive surgery patients usually have less postoperative pain and scar tissue buildup, and notice a significant improvement in mobility.
