What is a Hip Replacement?

During a hip replacement surgery, an orthopedic surgeon will remove the worn out or diseased parts of the hip joint and replace them with new artificial parts to help reduce pain and improve function.

Dr. Martin specializes in treating conditions affecting the hip, among other joints. He can diagnose your hip condition and provide a variety of treatment options including Hip Replacement.
