Your healthcare practitioner may propose a hip replacement if you’re having a lot of pain in your hip. This procedure substitutes your hip bone(s) with an artificial one, allowing you to move more freely and painlessly. It takes time to recover from a hip replacement, and there are a lot of regulations to follow to keep you safe and healthy.
