Hip Arthritis

Arthritis of the hip is one of the most commonly treated conditions at the Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS). Arising from a variety of underlying conditions, all hip arthritis shares in common a loss of cartilage of the hip joint that eventually leads to bone rubbing on bone, and destruction of the joint. Unfortunately, once the arthritic process begins, progression is almost always inevitable. However, the degree of pain and disability experienced by people with arthritis varies considerably.
