Hip damage is most often caused by degradation of the cartilage that provides cushioning between the end of the thigh bone (head of the femur) and the hip socket (acetabulum). Common causes include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, trauma, bone irregularities and osteonecrosis (bone decay).  There are several surgical and non-surgical treatment options.  If joint replacement surgery is needed, this involves the removal of the damaged parts of the hip and insertion of an artificial joint. The new joint restores pain-free movement, which increases the patient’s mobility and quality of life. Learn More
