Award-winning hip replacement surgery in Portsmouth
At Portsmouth Regional Hospital, we specialize in total and partial hip replacement, offering both traditional and minimally invasive options for our patients. Hip replacement surgery, or hip arthroplasty, helps to resolve hip pain caused by injury from fractures and conditions like avascular necrosis or severe arthritis. As a result, patients have better hip stability, mobility and function and less pain.

We have been recognized for high performance by U.S. News & World Report, and we are the only hospital in New Hampshire to be awarded a five-star rating for hip replacement by Healthgrades. The Joint Commission—a leading authority on quality care and safety—has also recognized us for excellence in hip replacement, meaning we offer superior outcomes and faster recovery for our patients.
Candidates for hip replacement surgery
Schedule an appointment with one of our orthopedic care experts if you:
- Experience hip pain or stiffness after sitting for a long time or getting out of bed
- Have pain, swelling or tenderness in the hip joint
- Hear or feel "crunching" in the hip joint
- Have tried other treatments, such as medicines and physical therapy, without success
Advanced hip replacement options
We offer advanced robotic surgery for total hip replacements. This minimally invasive approach uses 3D models and smaller incisions for unmatched precision and accuracy. This means less trauma to bones, tendons and muscles, resulting in faster recovery with less pain than traditional methods.
During hip replacement surgery, surgeons replace the ball of the thigh bone and socket of the pelvis bone with prosthetic (or artificial) pieces made from metal, ceramic and/or plastic. The procedure involves removing the damaged cartilage and bone and implanting the prosthetic joint.
The direct anterior (front) hip replacement is another minimally invasive alternative to traditional hip replacement that offers less trauma, fewer incisions and faster recovery.
