Hip Replacement

Self-schedule or call for more information.

Hip replacement surgery advances mean Norton Orthopedic Institute patients are typically up and around within a couple hours of surgery, and many go home the same day.

With our deep commitment to innovation and constant learning, patients in Louisville and Southern Indiana can count on the expertise and experience of our team to be on the leading edge of hip procedures and techniques.

Depending on the specific conditions, some people may need only physical therapy and anti-inflammatory treatment; some may need surgery to repair and preserve the hip, and others may be candidates for a hip replacement. Our skilled providers will listen to you and recommend the best treatment solution for your condition.

Advancing Hip Care Knowledge and Expertise

We care for thousands of people with hip conditions every year. That means our providers have the commitment and experience to give you a precise diagnosis and treat your condition with sophisticated techniques that can get you moving again with less pain and fewer complications.

Physicians from the Louisville area and elsewhere train with Norton Orthopedic Institute providers on orthopedic techniques and procedures.

At 66, Liz wasn’t going to let a worn-out hip set her back

Not long after her hip replacement surgery, Liz was jumping in the leaves with her 5-year-old grandson. She is also back to attending Jazzercise classes every day.

Our innovative surgeons employ techniques that have made hip replacement less invasive so you can get back to being active faster.

The orthopedic surgeons at Norton Orthopedic Institute perform more than 1,200 anterior-approach hip replacements each year.

By having the hip replaced through an incision in the front of the leg, rather than the back, most patients recover faster and with less pain because key muscles are not detached during the surgery. The anterior approach also uses a smaller incision to help reduce scarring.

Average recovery time for anterior-approach hip replacement surgery is two to eight weeks instead of the typical two to four months with conventional surgery.

Your insurance company may require you to try physical therapy and injections before surgery.
