Hip replacement surgery -- also called total hip arthroplasty -- may be your best option when nonsurgical treatments haven’t improved chronic hip pain caused by arthritis or a previous injury. Duke hip replacement surgeons offer several different surgical approaches. Whenever possible, they use minimally invasive techniques, which include small incisions to minimize pain and reduce recovery time.

Why Choose Duke
A Better Quality of Life
People come to us because we consistently achieve excellent long-term results, including improving your ability to move without pain.
Before- and After-Surgery Care
Our Joint Health Program can help you prepare your body for surgery so you have the best chance for a good outcome. After surgery, physical therapy can help you regain your ability to move and enjoy activities of daily living.
Fewer Complications, Longer-Lasting Hip Replacements
Our hip surgeons use computer-guided, GPS-like technology to make more precise surgical cuts and more accurately place the prosthetic joints. This improvement in device placement decreases the risk of complications and increases the longevity of your artificial joint.
Revision Hip Replacement Surgery
We frequently receive referrals for revision surgery, which corrects previous hip replacement when patients continue to have pain and problems with mobility. We have the experience you can trust.
Hip Replacement Experience
Studies show that patients benefit from their surgeon’s experience. Our fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeons have performed thousands of hip replacement surgeries and constantly fine tune their methods and practices.
A Team Approach
Our doctors, surgeons, physician assistants, nurses, anesthesiologists, physical therapists, and occupational therapists work together to ensure that you make a complete recovery after surgery. Physical therapy helps you return to normal daily activities quickly and with minimal pain.
Success with the Most Challenging Cases
We often get the most challenging hip replacement cases -- ones that other centers may not have the experience to handle. In fact, many of our patients come to us so we can correct procedures performed elsewhere. If you have had hip replacement surgery but are still experiencing pain that disrupts your quality of life, consider Duke.
Joint Replacement Surgery Research Leaders
Our joint replacement surgeons test and develop promising procedures and new prostheses with the goal of making joint replacements work better and last longer.
