Hip Replacement Surgery

Carol was in constant pain and used crutches for three years. Now, after her total hip replacement, Carol is actively playing with her grandchildren, gardening, taking daily walks with her husband, and feels like there's nothing she can't do.

When you experience hip pain, it can keep you from doing the things you enjoy and make everyday life more difficult.  Put your trust in a surgeon who has sub-specialty training in treating hip injuries. We have an experienced team of more than 75 orthopaedic surgeons, doctors, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners, with many offering sub-specialized care for hip pain in six locations across New Hampshire.

Latest Treatments and Procedures

We offer a wide variety of treatment options from physical therapy to the newest minimally invasive, muscle-sparing procedures for a shorter recovery time and less pain during recovery, as well as the latest in non-surgical options.

Some of the most common treatments we offer include:

  • Hip arthroscopy
  • Hip osteotomy
  • Hip resurfacing (Lebanon)
  • Mini-posterolateral total hip replacement
  • Partial hip replacement
  • Total hip replacement and revision surgery: posterior, lateral, or anterior approach (anterior approach available at Lebanon, Manchester and Nashua only)
  • Non-surgical treatments: medications, injections, viscosupplementation, physical therapy, walking aids, weight management, exercise program

Supporting You Along the Way

Our team is here to give you all of the information you need to make the best decision to fit your lifestyle and your goals.

We offer a joint replacement education program at all of our locations.  This free education class, or “joint camp,” is designed for patients to help them learn what to expect before, during and after surgery and how to prepare ahead of time.

After surgery, we offer physical therapy options to give you the best outcome possible. Our nurses are here to answer your questions along the way as well.
