Hip Replacement Surgery in Wisconsin
Hip Surgery Options at Aurora Health Care
Do you have pain or stiffness in your hip? Is this making it difficult to walk, bend or lift a leg? If so, turn to the orthopedic hip surgeons at Aurora Health Care. With hip replacement surgery, we can help you get back to enjoying normal everyday activities.
Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery
At Aurora Health Care, we are experts in minimally invasive hip surgery, or the "anterior" approach to hip replacement surgery. Anterior hip surgery involves accessing the hip from the anterior—or front—of the body, as opposed to the side or the back. Damaged or diseased bone is removed and replaced with an artificial ball-and-socket joint.
The benefits include:
- Faster recovery. Aurora’s approach does not require the cutting of muscle to reach the hip, so you’ll typically recover faster.
- Immediate movement. At Aurora, you’re allowed – even encouraged – to bend your hip freely right after surgery because there’s less risk of dislocation.
- Light activities after three to six weeks. After only three to six weeks, our patients are usually able to resume normal light activities. Complete recovery can take up to six months.
Who Should Have Hip Replacement Surgery?
A conventional hip replacement procedure is often reserved for patients who have a painful, disabling joint disease of the hip resulting from severe arthritis, or who have not benefited from medication, therapy or other less invasive procedures. It is considered one of the most successful operations in modern medicine.
