Why do I need total hip replacement surgery?
There are many reasons why someone might need total hip replacement surgery. Some of the most common reasons include:
Arthritis: Arthritis is a condition that causes inflammation and pain in the joints. Hip arthritis is a common form of arthritis, and it can cause severe pain and stiffness in the hip joint.
Injuries: Hip injuries, such as fractures or dislocations, can also damage the hip joint and lead to pain and decreased function.
Degenerative conditions: Some people are born with or develop degenerative conditions that affect the hip joint, such as Legg-Calve-Perthes disease or avascular necrosis. These conditions can also lead to pain and decreased function in the hip joint.
