Doing What's Right

FOR OUR COMMUNITY 

We have established protocols for staff and physicians to ensure that our response is consistent with the standards of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local and state health departments. Many office visits can be done via Telemedicine.

Due to the increasingly stringent Shelter In Place orders, the need for determining true necessity for in-office visits is essential and required. Someone from your clinical team will contact you to determine your current needs.

Hip Surgery

When your hip joint is damaged by injury, osteoarthritis, or age, pain can be severe and the ability to walk and enjoy life can be limited.

Hip replacement surgery performed by the board-certified surgeons at Orthopaedic Specialists of Austin can restore your quality of life.

How can a total hip replacement performed by our extensively trained Austin, TX, surgeons give you back your mobility and eliminate pain?

Why Choose Us for Hip Surgery

Board-Certified/Fellowship-Trained Surgeons

Our hip specialists are some of the most talented orthopedic surgeons in the country, let alone Texas. They all passed rigorous certification exams and have undergone years of specialized education and training that other surgeons have not.

Hip Surgery Experience

While other orthopedic practices have general surgeons who may do a few hip procedures a year, our skilled hip specialists often perform multiple hip replacement surgeries every week.

Conservative Outpatient Procedure

Your total hip replacement will be done as an outpatient procedure at our Austin, TX, practice using minimally invasive techniques and incisions that reduce scarring. As a result, the need for general anesthesia, risk of major blood loss, and trauma to hip muscle and tissues are decreased.

Home Recovery

Our cutting-edge techniques allow patients to go home for rest and rehabilitation instead of having to stay in a hospital.

Latest Technologies

Our practice features the latest diagnostic and arthroscopic surgical technologies in the field of orthopedics, including robot-assisted procedures.

Recovery after Hip Surgery

  • You will be given specific instructions regarding home wound care and physical therapy exercises to get yourself moving as soon as possible.
  • It is important to create safe, wide open spaces in your home prior to surgery to accommodate the use of a walker or crutches.
  • Clean the incision site and change your bandages as directed. Ice packs and compression stockings can reduce swelling.
  • Take any prescribed medications for pain or to fight infection as recommended by your surgeon.
  • Most importantly, stay active. Walk as soon as you feel able, even just for short periods. This is the best way to improve muscle tone and flexibility. Try low-impact activities like bicycling and swimming if possible.
  • For most patients, full recovery should take around six to eight weeks, but it is best to avoid high-impact activities like running, basketball, and tennis for a longer period of time.
  • For more information, check out our blog post on the topic.
