Hip Replacement

Experts Answer Your Questions

Each year, more than 300,000 adults in the United States undergo hip replacement surgery. What can the many people experiencing hip pain in this country expect before, during, and after surgery? Hip Replacement—part of a new series of Johns Hopkins University Press books on specific surgical procedures—is designed to provide quick answers to all of the most common questions individuals have about hip surgery and the recovery process.

Focusing on the patient experience, this frank and easy-to-use book highlights real patient experiences with hip pain, diagnosis, and treatment. The book
• discusses basic hip anatomy
• describes the symptoms of hip arthritis
• explores alternative treatments, including lifestyle changes, medications, and surgical treatments other than hip replacement
• reviews the entire recovery process, including preferred exercises to help speed your recovery and how quickly you can return to certain activities
• features a glossary of key terms and a list of frequently asked questions
• contains numerous sidebars touching on important points to consider, questions to ask your doctor, red flags, and risks
• is supplemented with useful illustrations and photographs

The book's concise format allows readers to peruse the content quickly in the days leading up to surgery and then refer to it during the recovery period. Written by experts in the field, Hip Replacement is destined to become the most trusted book on this topic.
