Hip Joint Replacements

Dr. Lox | www.drlox.com | 844-440-8503

Chronic hip pain often leads patients to the orthopedic surgeon, and If hip arthritis is present not to infrequently a recommendation for total hip joint replacement is made. Many patients consult Dr. Dennis Lox for Stem Cell Therapy for hip osteoarthritis as an alternative to hip replacement. If the hip joint is still displaying evidence of a joint space stem cells can be of greater value. However, Dr. Lox has treated patients with severe hip joint arthritis and the patients functional level improved and they were able to avoid hip joint replacement. Many factors are involved in the success of treatment.

Dr. Lox performs a thorough evaluation prior to consideration of stem cell treatment for chronic hip pain. There are many other etiologies for chronic hip pain including avascular necrosis (AVN) or osteonecrosis, referred pain from other regions such as the low back, and pain arising from the groin. If it is determined the patient is a good candidate for stem cell therapy, the procedure is relatively simple. It is a half day outpatient procedure. The patient walks out of the office. Generally there is minimal pain and pain medications are not needed. There is no lengthy recovery as in hip replacement surgery, and physical therapy is not needed. All these factors make stem cell treatment for hip arthritis an appealing alternative to hip replacement surgery.
