Dr. O'Connor explains if hip replacement surgery is the best option for women who have hip arthritis.

Dr. O'Connor:
Hip replacement surgery is a fabulous solution for women that have bad arthritis of the hip. Now, that’s not a solution if you can be managed without surgery, but for those that are bad enough, it’s a fabulous operation. It restores your ability to function and walk and be active and do the things that you want to do again. It’s highly effective at getting rid of your pain and it is just a great operation.
