Hip surgery is a common procedure that helps treat a wide range of hip injuries and conditions, including hip fractures, osteoarthritis, and hip impingement. There are several different types of hip surgeries, each with their unique approach to rehabbing. Some of the most common hip surgeries include hip replacement, hip arthroscopy, and hip resurfacing.
Hip replacement surgery involves replacing the damaged hip joint with a prosthetic joint. Patients who undergo this surgery often require several weeks of rehabilitation to regain mobility and strength. During the rehabilitation process, patients will typically work with a physical therapist to perform exercises aimed at improving range of motion, flexibility, and strength.
Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgery that involves making small incisions in the hip joint to repair or remove damaged tissues. This type of surgery typically requires less recovery time than traditional open surgery, but patients will still require several weeks of rehabilitation to regain strength and mobility.
Hip resurfacing is a surgical procedure that involves reshaping the damaged hip joint and placing a metal cap over the femoral head. This surgery is often performed on younger patients who wish to preserve as much natural bone as possible. Rehabilitation after hip resurfacing surgery typically involves exercises aimed at improving range of motion and strength.
