Total hip replacement
Hip replacement surgery, also known as hip arthroplasty, resolves hip pain caused by fractures, avascular necrosis, severe arthritis or other conditions. The result is better stability, mobility and function and less pain.
Johnston-Willis specializes in total hip replacement surgery. Our orthopedic surgeons replace the ball of the thigh bone and socket of the pelvis bone with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic.
We offer traditional and direct anterior hip replacement techniques. The direct anterior (front) hip replacement is minimally invasive and requires smaller incisions with less trauma to tendons and muscles. This means faster recovery and less pain than traditional approaches.
