Hip Replacement Surgery
Your hip is the largest weight-bearing joint in your body. When it hurts, it can keep you from walking or bending, can keep you awake day and night, and it limits your ability to move or lift your leg.
But, you don’t have to continue to suffer.
You can call Ministry Medical Group’s Orthopedic Department in Stevens Point.
The orthopedic team will work with you to diagnose and treat your hip pain. Oftentimes, pain can be minimized by using walking supports, by strengthening the hip muscles through an individualized physical therapy program, or by using anti-inflammatory drugs.
But when these treatments no longer control the pain and it hurts to walk or move, you may want to consider hip replacement surgery. During hip replacement surgery, your orthopedic surgeon will remove the damaged bone and cartilage and replace it with prosthetic components that allow you to move more freely without pain.
Call Ministry Medical Group’s orthopedic department at 715.342.7950 to see if you are a candidate for hip replacement surgery … and get your life moving again.

Knee Replacement Surgery
The most common reason to have a knee joint replaced is to provide relief for severe arthritis pain that limits what a person is able to do. Your doctor may recommend knee replacement when:
- You are having symptoms of knee arthritis, such as:
- You can't sleep through the night because of knee pain.
- Your knee pain limits or keeps you from being able to do your normal activities, such as bathing, preparing meals, household chores, and other things.
- Your knee pain has not improved with other treatment.
- You understand that surgery and recovery afterwards will be like.
Some people are more willing to accept the limits their knee pain has placed on them. This means waiting until the pain is waking them up at night or preventing them from doing everyday activities.
Others may be interested in knee replacement surgery if their pain is preventing them from taking longer walks, playing tennis or golf, or being able to do other important, casual activities.
