Outpatient Total Hip Replacement

At some point in your life, you may suffer from debilitating pain or stiffness in the joints of your hips. Sometimes, this pain is temporary and may go away without the need for any treatment. In other cases, surgical intervention may be necessary.

In cases where osteoarthritis-related symptoms are severe and persistent, you may be considered for a total hip replacement surgery (hip arthroplasty). Of course, prior to any surgical intervention, your treating physicians should always consider conservative treatment options. For osteoarthritis of the hips, these conservative treatments can include: steroid injections, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, stem cell injections, and visco supplementation. If these methods fail to provide relief, then typically total hip replacement would be the next step.

What You Need To Know

The OJRCA Method

A total hip replacement surgery is a procedure where the damaged bone and/or cartilage of the hip is surgically replaced with a prosthetic joint. In past, total hip replacement procedures would typically require incisions that were 6-9 inches in size. With new medical advancements, these procedures can be performed minimally-invasive with incisions that are only 3-4 inches long. The entire procedure can be done in just about an hour (dependent on the skill of the surgeon).

You may be a good candidate for a total hip replacement if you have:

Pain in hip and/or groin that has persisted after a course of conservative treatment
Diagnosis of bone on bone arthritis (typically seen on X-ray)
Pain that is severe enough to prohibit you from daily activities (walking, climbing stairs, getting up from a chair)

“Dr. Clifford is an excellent surgeon, but also has a way to talk to and discuss the issues and concerns with his patients. I continue to tell everyone that asks, and some that don’t, how great it was working with him and what excellent results I had. I am very grateful I had him in my corner while going through these surgeries.”

-Mary B.

Patient Success

“Dr. Clifford also insisted that I recuperate at home but that I go out for physical therapy. He said that he wanted his patients to “get up, get dressed and go out for physical therapy”. I believe that’s what saved me!”

-Jondeen T.

Patient Success

“Dr. Clifford performed the second surgery with a fairly new and less invasive technique. What an amazing difference. I had the surgery or a Monday around noon and was home around 8pm the same night. ”

-D. Meuler

Patient Success

“No way! Was my first reaction to the idea that a hip replacement could be done as outpatient surgery. But now, having had both hips replaced six months apart and having returned home the same day for each, I am convinced, pleased, and walking around without pain for the first time in years.”

-Karen S.

Patient Success

“I have never met another surgeon that truly loves what he does, cares about his patients and listens to what you have to say.”
