Care for Hips and Knees


Whether you are just starting to experience pain and loss of mobility in your hips or knees, you have been treating the pain for some time, you are about to undergo surgery, or you are recovering from a total joint replacement, we have information to help you make informed decisions about your care.

The AAHKS Patient Education Committee, comprised of orthopaedic surgeons who practice hip and knee surgery, have developed these materials for you. Use them to educate yourself and to generate questions that you can ask your physician.

If you need a physician, use our doctor finder to locate a hip and knee surgeon near you.
