Patient Education - Hip:

Patient education is an important tool in your orthopedic care, giving you an active role in your treatment process. Please click on the links below to learn more about the anatomy of the hip as well as some of the hip conditions our surgeons treat.

Each year in the United States, more than 200,000 total hip replacement procedures are performed. Continuously evolving techniques and innovations make these replacement surgeries uniquely beneficial to patients who suffer from arthritis and other painful hip conditions. These procedures can alleviate problems caused by osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, fractures, congenital conformity and other diseases which restrict a patient’s active lifestyle.

Scientific studies have clearly demonstrated that surgeons like those at Twin Cities Orthopedics who specialize in hip replacement surgery and perform large numbers of these procedures have superior outcomes for their patients. The physicians at the Twin Cities Orthopedics perform thousands of joint replacement procedures annually. In combination with our trained physical therapists and medical staff, our orthopedics surgeons are ready to provide the very best in both surgical and non-surgical evaluation and treatment of your hip conditions.

Our patients are encouraged to read the information provided on our website prior to visiting with their surgeon allowing them to generate a list of questions they may have regarding their condition or procedure.
