If you need a hip replacement, Southeast Georgia Health System offers leading-edge care and experienced hip replacement specialists to help you return to the activities you enjoy. There’s no need to travel far away and navigate an unfamiliar city and hospital to receive excellent care. Our Orthopaedic & Spine Center in Brunswick and Joint Replacement Center in St. Marys have the facilities, innovative technologies and expertise to ensure that you receive the best results possible.

Why a new hip?

Advanced arthritis is a common reason for hip replacement. You might consider having surgery if pain and limited movement interfere with your daily life and nonsurgical interventions no longer provide effective treatment.

Hip replacement is designed to improve your function and reduce your pain. It can be an option for patients of any age. Our orthopaedic surgeons will help you decide if you are a candidate for surgery.

If hip replacement is the best option for you, our team will offer extensive education to help you prepare for surgery and recovery.

Your orthopaedic surgeon will start by answering questions like:

  • What will the surgery involve?
  • What can I expect during recovery?
  • When can I return to work?
  • How can I protect my new hip?
  • How much pain relief and improvements in function can I expect?

In addition, our joint replacement class will answer all your questions in detail.

Leading the way in hip replacement surgery

The trusted orthopaedic surgeons on our Brunswick and Camden campuses have immense experience with hip replacement surgery, and they achieve excellent results.

Your surgeon might replace your hip using X-ray guidance. Or you might be a candidate for Mako robotic-arm-assisted hip replacement. Our team will help you understand the advantages of each approach and make the right decision to treat your injury or condition.

Have your physical therapy close to home

After hip replacement surgery, you will begin recovery and rehabilitation. Many of our patients go home the same day as their surgery and continue their physical therapy on an outpatient basis.

Physical therapy is available at Southeast Georgia Health System, so you and your family can stay close to home throughout your recovery. Our orthopaedic surgeons work closely with our physical therapy team to help ensure the best possible recovery for you.
