Your doctor will likely suggest other treatments first, including

  • Walking aids, such as a cane
  • An exercise program
  • Physical therapy
  • Medications

These treatments may decrease hip pain and improve function. Sometimes the pain remains and makes daily activities hard to do. In this case, your doctor may order an x ray to look at the damage to the joint. If the x ray shows damage and your hip joint hurts, you may need a hip replacement.


Healthy, active people often have very good results after hip replacement surgery. But your doctor may not suggest this surgery if you have:

  • A disease that causes severe muscle weakness
  • Parkinson's disease
  • A high risk of infection
  • Poor health.
