In brief: Definite answer

Tha is the definite answer for treating arthritis as that is the only was you can change pathogenesis of the condition.
That is why you have pain relief after hip arthroplasty. Same apply to hip revision.

In brief: Continuous epidural

In the immediate postoop period, a continuous epidural infusion allows superior analgesia , full range of motion, and early rehab.
Some anesthesiologists employ a spinal-epidural approach for during and after surgery. This is associated with less blood loss and risk of blood clots. Weeks after surgery, a combination of anti-inflammatory drugs along with an opioid (hydrocodone/ oxycodone) is best.

In brief: Question?

It is not clear what you are asking.
Are you asking why pain is relieved after surgery or what to do about pain after surgery? If it is the latter, often narcotic pain meds are needed. Physical therapy is also crucial in healing and pain relief after any joint surgery. If this is not the answer you are seeking, please re-ask the question.

In brief: Improved joint

Painless, smooth joint movement relies on a smooth joint.
When either surface of the joint is worn, damaged or narrowed, pain and decreased motion result. After joint surgery the smooth motion is restored and pain resolves.

In brief: Epidural

An epidural for intraoperative and postoperative pain relief is an excellent choice.
