Course Summary

Arthritis, fractures, and repetitive strain can cause significant pain in the hip joint over time, but hip replacement surgery is an option for many patients each year in the United States. Plastic, ceramic, and metal components can be used to wholly replace the ball-and-socket hip joint and restore mobility in patients. Although most patients who undergo total hip replacement surgery are either retired or elderly, it can be useful for any patient who suffers pain that is not relieved by traditional methods. Rehabilitation that is clinic-based or home-based is discussed in terms of expected outcomes of success as well as factors that may limit the patient’s full recovery. This is part 2 of a 2 - part course.
