When joint pain is severe and interferes with daily activities and work, joint replacement may be an option. At Johnston-Willis, we're certified by The Joint Commission for Total Hip Replacements.

Signs that it might be time for a hip replacement:

  • You're no longer as mobile as you'd like to be
  • Your pain persists or recurs over time
  • Your hip aches during and after exercise
  • Medication and using a cane aren't delivering enough relief
  • Your hip stiffens up from sitting in a car or not moving for a certain period of time
  • The pain prevents you from sleeping
  • Your hip is stiff or swollen

If you're suffering from chronic hip pain, it's time to call the surgeons at Johnston-Willis Hospital for an evaluation. We can help.
