You use your hip joint for almost all daily activities, including getting up from sitting, walking, turning, and bending. When disease or injury damages your hip joint, the resulting pain can have significant effects on your mobility. Although there are helpful medical treatments, ultimately a hip replacement is often required. In the Joint Replacement Service of the Department of Orthopedics at Sheba Medical Center in Israel, we perform hip replacement surgery (endoprosthesis) using cutting-edge technologies and innovative prostheses.

At Sheba, you will benefit from precise hip replacement surgery and expert rehabilitation services.
