Hip Osteoarthritis isn't an automatic trip to the operating room, but knowledge is power! Dr. Tippets describes what hip osteoarthritis is, how it is treated in the beginning and when surgery is needed.
You'll also hear Dr. Tippets describe an approach to hip replacement surgery--direct anterior approach--which goes in between the hip muscles instead of cutting through them. This results in less pain after surgery and a quicker return to function.
Listen as Dr. Tippets explains...
