Count on your expert care team to help you get ready for surgery and recover as quickly and safely as possible. You’ll receive the best possible care while you stay close to home in Maryland and Washington D.C.
How It’s Done
Your surgeon will remove damaged parts of the hip and replace all or some of the joint with an artificial ball and cup. Your bone will grow into the artificial parts. This procedure can help your hip work better and move smoothly.
Your surgeon may use the Hana Table – specialized equipment that does hip replacement through the front of the hip instead of the back. This means your muscle won’t be cut, so you can heal more quickly and with less pain.
Adventist HealthCare Shady Grove Medical Center was the first hospital in Montgomery County to offer the Hana Table. Ask your care team if this approach is right for you.
Your surgeon may use MAKOplasty® equipment to do your procedure. This advanced imaging and robotic technology will help your doctor personalize your hip surgery and precisely place your joint. You’ll have a faster recovery with less scarring and discomfort.
Hip Replacement Revision Surgery
You may need a second hip replacement surgery if the replacement wears out or the first surgery doesn’t fully relieve pain. Trust your revision to an experienced team with the specialized skills it takes to have a successful outcome.
