After all other treatment options have failed to give your hip relief from disability and discomfort, arthroplasty, or joint replacement, may be in order.
Orthopedic Surgery Will Never Be as Inexpensive As It Is Now
Deductibles reset in January, so there will never be a better time to get back or neck treatment.
Think about it this way: every copay you’ve made this year has been an investment on your pain relief.
Can you afford to wait any longer to finally take care of your back pain?

Onward Orthopedics offers different types of hip reconstruction options that can be personalized to your level of arthritis to be as minimally invasive as possible.
A patient with advanced arthritis who has exhausted all non-surgical treatment options may be an ideal candidate for hip resurfacing. The surgeon only removes and replaces the damaged bone and cartilage within the socket. Hip resurfacing is recommended for younger, larger-framed patients with strong, healthy bone. Because it is less invasive than a full replacement, it offers physically active adults a quicker way to resume their active lifestyles.
Benefits of Hip Resurfacing
- May be easier to revise
- Decreased risk of hip relocation
- More normal walking pattern
Robotic or MAKO Replacement
It all begins with a CT Scan of your joint, which helps the system generate a 3D virtual model of your hip joint. The surgeon then loads this virtual model into the Mako System software to create your personalized pre-operative plan. In the operating room, your surgeon will use Mako to assist in performing your hip replacement based on your personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako System allows your surgeon to make adjustments to your plan during surgery as needed. During the procedure, your surgeon will prepare your bone based on the operative boundaries created by the Mako technology software. These boundaries help protect the essential anatomic structures of the knee and help minimize trauma to surrounding tissue. This also helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.
Currently, Onward Orthopedic partner surgeons utilize this technology to perform total hip replacements in Phoenix, AZ.
Benefits of Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology
- CT derived, 3D modeling enables accurate planning of implant size, orientation and alignment pre-operatively
- Allows for more natural joint feel and helps preserve healthy tissue and bone
- Reduces recovery time and shortens hospital stay
Total Hip Replacement
If wear-and-tear has broken down the cartilage cushioning between your hip bones, a total hip replacement may be recommended to relieve pain and restore function. With a total hip replacement, the entire hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint (prosthesis).
When to Consider This Procedure:
- Hip pain limits daily activities like walking or bending
- Hip pain continues while resting, either day or night
- Stiffness in a hip limits ability to move or lift the leg
- Pain has not been relieved from conservative treatment
