Exploring Hip Replacement Surgery, Denver
While most hip replacement patients are between the ages of 60 and 80, this surgery is not restricted to seniors. Those who are extremely active, have an injury or genetic predisposition may require hip replacement surgery much earlier in life.
A patient who will find success with hip replacement surgery experiences pain that is limiting, significantly disrupting or completely eliminating the ability to perform everyday tasks such as standing or walking. This pain often keeps the patient awake at night and stiffness limits movements such as sitting or lying down.
Patients who seek out hip replacement surgery typically have explored other options such as medication, physical therapy or gait aids (walker or cane) and have not found relief.
