Hopefully not: It depends on the source of the hip pain that you are having. I would just make sure you remind your surgeon that you are having hip pain as well. Either way, if you need a knee manipulation, it is going to have to be done. Hopefully, by restoring a more normal range of motion to your knee, it will help with your hip pain as well.
