Hip Surgery FAQ

Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions along with their answers. If you have any other questions that you need answered, please ask your surgeon or the care team.

In the hip joint there is a layer of smooth cartilage on the ball of the upper end of the thigh bone (femur) and another layer within your hip socket. This cartilage serves as a cushion and allows for smooth motion of the hip. Arthritis is a wearing away of this cartilage. Eventually it wears down to bone. Rubbing of bone against bone causes discomfort, swelling and stiffness.
