Hip Replacement Surgery
When the hip becomes increasingly unstable or painful due to injury or illness, replacing the joint is often the most beneficial treatment option at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will always explore the potential for restoring function from joint preservation treatments. However, they are committed to making recommendations based on the best outcomes for patients.
Patients at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics may require hip replacement surgery for a number of joint-related issues, including:
- Diseases that cause hip death
- Joint fracture or injury
- Tumors on the hip bone
Replacing the hip with a prosthetic implant can restore lost mobility and function while relieving symptoms like pain and stiffness. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds specialize in providing conservative solutions for pain problems whenever possible. You may benefit from either a partial or complete hip replacement, based on the results of a clinical examination and response to previous treatment efforts.
Other considerations when recommending hip replacement surgery may include the patient’s age, lifestyle and medical history. At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, we ensure that all treatment choices are patient-guided. While Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds will make strong treatment recommendations, the ultimate decision is yours alone.
