Hip replacement surgery in Rochester
Frisbie Memorial Hospital's orthopedic surgeons use the latest minimally invasive technologies. Through a hip replacement surgery or hip arthroplasty, your orthopedic surgeon can alleviate hip pain, whether from injury by fractures or conditions like avascular necrosis. The result is better stability, mobility and function of your hip joint.

Advanced hip replacement options
During hip replacement surgery, surgeons replace the ball of the thigh bone and socket of the pelvis bone with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the prosthetic joint.
The direct anterior (front) hip replacement is another minimally invasive alternative to traditional hip replacement that offers less trauma, fewer incisions and faster recovery.
