Hip Replacement & Repair

Your hips work hard for you every day, yet arthritis or other hip conditions can cause stiffness, swelling and pain. Hip problems may lead to loss of movement and keep you from activities.

The orthopedic specialists at Abington Health can help relieve your pain and restore your quality of life. Our experts evaluate your hip condition and make treatment recommendations to fit your lifestyle. Initial treatments might include cortisone injections and medication to reduce inflammation around the joint.

When surgery offers a better solution for you, we are highly experienced with minimally invasive procedures, including the newest anterior (front) hip replacement and hip resurfacing. These techniques use smaller incisions, resulting in less pain, shorter hospital stays and a quicker recovery.

Hip Replacement

We offer the latest anterior and posterior approaches to hip replacement. Both methods use mini-incisions for faster healing, with several implant options.

Hip Resurfacing

Depending on your level of activity, hip resurfacing may be right for getting you back in the game. Available only at select hospitals across the country, hip resurfacing is offered through Abington Health’s Orthopaedic & Spine Institute.

Experience You Can Trust

The Abington Health orthopedic specialists at Abington Memorial Hospital and Lansdale Hospital are your best choice for hip replacement and repair. Named a Blue Distinction Center+ for Knee and Hip Replacement® by Independence Blue Cross, Abington Memorial Hospital was the first teaching hospital in Pennsylvania to have received the prestigious Gold Seal of Approval and Disease-Specific Certification from the Joint Commission for hip and knee replacement.
