Hip Replacement at Northwestern Memorial Hospital

During a hip replacement surgery, your surgeon removes the painful hip joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. Hip replacement is usually done when all other treatment options have failed to provide pain relief. The procedure relieves pain, making it easier for you to walk and enjoy your favorite activities. Our team of hip replacement experts offer a unified approach to hip replacement. An established set of protocols for pain control, rehabilitation and patient care help decrease risk of complications after your surgery.

Patient Story

Daniel Smith, a firefighter for over 25 years, sought a second opinion regarding total hip replacement surgery options for something called avascular necrosis. Michael Stover, MD, an orthopaedic surgeon, proposed a minimally invasive approach to hip replacement, which meant less pain and a faster recovery. For Daniel, it also meant being able to return to work and reach retirement faster.
