I'm not sure if they are using this in the hip joint yet. It is used in the knee and works quite well for a lot of people. It helps to replace the "cushion" that has degenerated from the arthritis. Some folks are able to postpone surgery by having Synvisc placed in the knee. If they are doing it in the hip joint, it may be worth a try.
