Hip osteoarthritis: treatment options

Use this decision aid to help you and your healthcare professional talk about how best to manage your hip pain and activity level. 

The first steps are to become as fit as possible, work to approach your ideal weight, and consider trying physical therapy. Surgery is normally recommended only after non-operative treatments have been tried.
