Hip and pelvis treatment in Aurora

The orthopedic care team at The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) is dedicated to helping patients recover from hip and pelvic injuries and diseases. Some conditions can be treated without surgery, however, severe conditions may require a hip replacement.

To schedule an appointment for hip or pelvic treatments, please call (303) 873-0630.

Hip replacement surgery

A hip replacement involves your orthopedic surgeon replacing damaged parts of your hip joint with artificial implants. The new implants function as parts of a new hip joint, alleviating pain that was once caused by a diseased or injured hip joint.

Comprehensive support for hip replacement patients

If your Aurora orthopedist suggests hip replacement surgery as your treatment, rest assured you will receive comprehensive care and support at TMCA. As the only hospital in Colorado offering the Own the Bone program, our specialists work in multispecialty teams to provide well-rounded care and individualized treatment to each orthopedic patient.

We also offer a joint replacement educational class to help patients learn what to expect before, during and after joint replacement surgery. Our physical therapy and rehabilitation services, which begin as soon as possible while you are still in the hospital, help you recover safely and fully after surgery.
