SCRMC HealthBreak | Hip Replacement Surgery

Posted on March 18, 2019

One of the interesting points that hip patients always make is how much it was hurting before, and how much better they feel after the surgery. Charles Black, an Orthopaedic Surgeon at South Central Regional Medical Center, states that one of the easy things to know if you have hip pain or not, is very simply, how easy is it for you to put on a sock or a shoe. And if that’s the case, then you definitely need to be evaluated with X-Rays and physical examination. If conservative treatments fail to alleviate hip pain, hip replacement surgery may be the solution. Fortunately, South Central Regional Medical Center offers a comprehensive joint replacement program. We have a really great joint camp program, that involves the nursing staff, physical therapy, as well as myself as the surgeon. We really try to get people’s family involved, their support system, so that they’re aware of what the expectations are and things to look out for. For more information, visit scrmc.com.
