Total Hip Surgeries at Phoebe Sumter

Total Hip Arthroplasty Surgical Outcomes

About the procedure: Total hip arthroplasty – also known as THA or hip replacement – is a surgical procedure that replaces a damaged hip joint and replaces it with artificial parts.

Understanding the data: With one infection out of 55 THA surgeries in 2018, Phoebe Sumter’s outcomes were below the expected rate for this procedure.

How we’re improving outcomes: To comply with best practices you and your caregiver meet with the Phoebe Sumter team prior to your surgery. The team includes the Surgical team, Physical Therapy and Care Management to provide education about your procedure and develop your plan for recovery.
