Hip replacement surgery may be a viable option for people with chronic hip pain and dysfunction that does not respond to conservative treatment. If you live in Brandon, Florida, and would like to consult with an experienced orthopedic surgeon regarding your treatment options, turn to Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group (a division of Florida Medical Clinic). Our practice is led by Dr. Daniel Murphy, a board-certified orthopedic surgeon who utilizes advanced hip replacement techniques to provide exceptional results for his patients.
The hip is a ball-and-socket joint that features a layer of cushioning cartilage. Osteoarthritis, the most common reason for hip replacement surgery, causes this cartilage to wear away, forcing the ball (the femoral head) and socket (the acetabulum) components of the joint to rub together. The result is joint stiffness, immobility, and discomfort that can make living a normal, active life difficult. While many osteoarthritis patients are able to effectively manage their pain with conservative treatments like physical therapy and medication, surgery to replace the worn parts of the joint may be the best course of action for certain individuals.
At Tampa Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Group, located near Brandon, FL, Dr. Murphy uses the Stryker® Accolade system of implants for hip replacement procedures, a highly advanced line of artificial joints that are tailored to each patient’s individual needs. These implants are designed to provide optimum comfort, stability, and longevity while facilitating natural movement. And because Dr. Murphy is skilled in muscle-sparing techniques, many of our patients are able to return to the activities they enjoy sooner than they thought possible.
