Hip Surgery at Methodist and Proctor
Your hip is one of the largest joints in your body, helping you walk, run and sit. You want your hips to work well so you can stay strong and active.
When you need to take care of hip pain, UnityPoint Health is here. We've got the latest in advanced traditional and robotic-assisted hip surgery options, and an orthopedics-trained team to support you.
Why Choose Us for Hip Surgery?
Hip surgery is complex, but we have the right care team to help you prepare. We have built our hip surgery programs to do just that, with:
- Orthopedic-trained staff: Your nurses and other clinical staff receive special training in the treatment of joint problems. They'll know how best to provide your care, monitor your progress and quickly solve problems.
- One-stop class and pre-op testing: We schedule your joint replacement class and pre-op lab work together. This keeps your trips to a minimum while you prepare for your surgery.
- Robotic-assisted surgery: Your surgeon may decide that robotic-assisted hip surgery is the best option for you. We are the only hospital in Peoria with the Mako Robotic Arm System™.
- Hip fracture care: Sometimes hip surgery isn't planned. Studies show the importance of a care team that acts quickly if you break your hip. We take this responsibility very seriously.
- Quality: We keep track of what's important for your care, like how satisfied you are with your care team's communication.
Hip Conditions That May Require Surgery
You may need hip surgery if you have the following conditions and other treatment has not worked:
- Hip pain and lack of function significantly impacting your life
- Osteoarthritis, which is arthritis resulting from life's normal wear and tear
- Rheumatoid arthritis, an immune system condition that damages cartilage, bones and joints
- Osteonecrosis, a condition in which the "ball" of the hip isn't getting enough blood
- Hip fracture due to a fall or accident
Our Hip Surgeries
Your doctor will decide which hip surgery option is best for you, based on your specific situation. We offer the following procedures at either of our Peoria hospitals:
Total hip replacement
Hip replacement surgery replaces the injured top of your thighbone (the ball of your hip) and hip bone (the socket) with new parts. Your doctor may choose a traditional or robotic-assisted surgery option. A replacement hip can be made of metal, ceramic or hard plastic.
Resurfacing is less extensive than complete hip replacement. Your surgeon removes the damaged parts of your hip and replaces them with metal.
Your doctor may decide to do a hip pinning procedure if you have a hip fracture (break your hip) from a fall or an accident. Your surgeon will put screws in your bone. The screws hold your hip together as it heals.
Partial hip replacement
You may have a partial hip replacement, also called a hemiarthroplasty, if you break your hip. Your surgeon replaces the injured part of your thighbone with metal but does not replace the socket.
What to Expect From Hip Surgery
Your doctor will want you to start moving as quickly as possible after the procedure. Our therapy team will help you, usually starting the day of your surgery.
When you get home, you may have restrictions, which are also called precautions. Your doctor will want you to avoid some physical activities, like crossing your legs or flexing your hip joints. You'll need some help when you first get home.
