Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement is surgery to replace a worn-out or damaged hip joint. The orthopedic surgeon replaces the old joint with an artificial joint. The most common cause of chronic hip pain and disability is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are the most common forms of this disease. The goal of hip replacement surgery is to replace the parts of the hip that have been damaged and to relieve day to day pain.

Orthopedic Associates of Lancaster’s team of expert hip surgeons will replace the diseased portion of the hip joint (the damaged cartilage and part of the bone underneath) with a replacement prosthesis to relieve your pain and make your joint work better. 

New hip joints usually last 15 to 20 years for around 95 percent of patients who have a total joint replacement procedure to relieve the pain from hip arthritis.

If you are considering hip replacement, review all of the options, including the benefits and risks of each, with your provider.

  • Despite having to visit Urgent Care, I was most impressed with the quality of service, professionalism and utmost dedication to giving expert advice and treatment by all the staff.
  • Universal welcoming attitude, listened to my wants and needs, efficient without hurrying, prompt exit processing.
  • I had my left shoulder worked on and the surgery was very successful. I do not have any limitations or pain now. I would use this group again for any orthopedic issue I may have in the future, because they CARE about your success.
  • The office staff were very helpful while you were there for your appointment. I have been a patient of OAL for over 40 years and that speaks for itself.
  • I knew I dislocated my finger when it was sticking out at a 45° angle from my hand. I thought I got it back into place, but was very grateful to have OAL‘s urgent care facility to go to to confirm. X-rays confirmed that it was still out of place and that there was also a fracture. I was then scheduled for an appointment with the hand specialist Dr. Griska five days later. I love having the option of an urgent care with orthopedic staff. Thank you OAL!
