Hip replacement surgery is a procedure that is performed to replace the hip joint with a prosthetic implant with metal and plastic components. Total hip replacement or Hemi replacements are performed by a surgeon, depending on the patient’s severity of pain with the hip joint. Hip joint replacement alleviates pain and improves mobility to resume daily activities and restore the patient’s quality of life.
For patients who require a hip replacement, the compassionate staff at Texas Health Flower Mound offers a high level of care for multiple types of treatment regarding the hip during the surgery and recovery process. Our orthopedics are highly experienced and thorough, which improves patient outcomes.
During the three-to six-month recovery process, our healthcare professionals have recovery programs available to restore mobility to the hip and help patients return to their normal lives. Most patients can begin walking in the days following the surgery with prescription medication is provided to alleviate pain or discomfort. The hospital stay is typically one to four days. Physical rehabilitation is necessary to complete the recovery process with follow-up appointments scheduled at our facility. The surgeon or physical therapist provides each patient with specific exercises to perform to increase the range of motion and regain strength.
