Jennifer was 48 years-old, but felt like she was living in a 90 years-old body. Her hip pain was constant from the time she woke to when she fell asleep at night. She needed help just doing simple daily activities. Life was passing her by, so she decided to see an orthopedic surgeon at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital, who recommended a total hip replacement. Jennifer is thrilled with her results, and says sometimes she even forgets she had a total hip replacement. She is doing things now she has not been able to do in years. Her only regret is not having the surgery sooner.

Imagining life without joint pain may be easier than you think. The Detroit Medical Center’s orthopedic team specializes in surgical and non-surgical treatments for hip pain. This includes minimally invasive hip replacement surgery, designed to help you recover quicker and with less pain when compared to traditional joint replacement surgery.
