Is hip replacement an option?

Hi there!

I just found this site, and I think it's great!

My husband, who is 31 years old, has PFFD. His foot was amputated at age 2, and his knee joint was fused at age 15. He gets around great with his prosthetic leg, but he has a fairly severe limp because of his missing hip joint.

I worry about possible future effects of his swaying gait on his back and other leg. I've always wondered if a hip replacement would be possible for him.

Has anyone had any experience with this?
