Boston Children’s Hospital and Hospital for Special Surgery will do total hip replacements on patients as young as teenagers. BCH does surgery on patients up until age 35, even though it’s called “children’s hospital”. Both of them take Tricare. After my terminal leave is over I am getting my surgery at Hospital for Special Surgery. My surgeon does total hip replacements on teens. Age is not a factor for him, he is focused on improving quality of life and decreasing pain. Don’t listen to military doctors who are not up to date on the latest ortho research. I need surgeries on my hips, femurs, and tibias bilaterally and I would only trust doctors at those 2 hospitals. After everything I went through in the military with my leg injuries I deserve only the best surgeon, the same for you!Already have. I’m going on my fourth hip surgery. This January I just had labral reconstruction and cadaver put in. They said it’ll keep tearing. My fai was so bad along with my arthritis that they can’t shave off anymore bone without making it unstable thus making it tear over and over. Unfortunately every surgeon I’ve been to says I need a hip replacement but won’t do it on someone my age. So the cadaver is supposed to help with pain. But that’s bs. It hurts worse everyday.
