Are You Eligible for Bilateral Hip Replacement?
If you’ve had chronic hip pain for some time, or if you’ve experienced a recent hip injury, your orthopaedic doctor may suggest bilateral hip replacement as a solution to your hip problem. In most cases, surgery is recommended if noninvasive treatments like physical therapy, joint injections or anti-inflammatory medications haven’t been successful at treating your joint pain.
