Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Partial Hip Replacement:

Non-surgical alternatives to partial hip replacement can include physical therapy, strength training, anti-inflammatory medications and steroid or hyaluronic acid injections. Some patients also benefit from wearing a hip brace. Surgical alternatives to the procedure include hip fusion, arthroscopic partial hip replacement and total hip replacement.

Anesthesia with Partial Hip Replacement:

Partial hip replacement is performed under general anesthesia, which means that the patient is asleep and completely unaware during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Partial Hip Replacement:

Possible risks following partial hip replacement include infection, bleeding and a negative reaction to the anesthesia. It is also possible for the artificial hip to become dislocated, or for inflammation or absorption of bone to occur around the artificial joint. Some patients do not experience an improvement in mobility.

Recovery from Partial Hip Replacement:

The total recovery time following partial hip replacement is three to six months.
