Hip Surgery at Tampa General Hospital
Hip surgery is generally only considered for a patient after other, more conservative treatment options, such as physical therapy, have failed to alleviate the painful symptoms caused by a hip condition. However, surgical procedures have been known to significantly improve a patient’s quality of life by providing them with increased mobility and reduced pain and inflammation. Though most commonly performed on elderly individuals to alleviate the symptoms of a degenerative condition, such as osteoarthrosis, hip surgery may also be necessary to repair traumatic damage to the hip incurred in an accident.
At Tampa General Hospital, we can accommodate patients who require hip surgery for an elective joint replacement procedure and those who have suffered an injury. We offer treatment in:
- TGH’s Joint Center – This 30-bed unit is dedicated to patients having joint replacement surgery and provides comprehensive post-surgical services, including physical and occupational therapy.
- TGH’s Orthopedic Trauma Care Center – This is a 34-bed unit where patients can receive surgical treatment for a wide variety of traumatic orthopedic conditions, including hip and pelvic acetabulum injuries.
TGH has been recognized as a leader in orthopedic care. We have earned and maintained numerous certifications from The Joint Commission, including many disease-specific certifications for joint replacement surgery, and a Gold Seal Certification for healthcare quality for our orthopedic trauma care program. Plus, we’ve been named a high performing hospital by U.S.News & World Report for hip replacement.
