Hip replacement is indicated in cases of severe joint damage leading to pain and stiffness and impacting on the  quality of life. Common causes of hip arthritis include osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and post traumatic (following previous fractures and dislocations) arthritis.  Sometimes it may be due to osteonecrosis (bone death) caused by certain drugs such as steroids and radiation treatment. If your specialist recommends this option to you, you will have failed to respond to simpler types of treatment.
