According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 300,000 hip replacement procedures are performed each year in the U.S. Hip replacements are fairly common in older adults.
According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, most patients who undergo total hip replacement are ages 50 to 80. However, hip replacements can be performed on younger people in certain cases. Orthopedic surgeons evaluate patients individually to determine the best treatment.
