No. Too young and other conservative options should be used.

In brief: Not your 1st choice
In today's environment, although unusual, hip replacement may be indicated for someone as young as 40.
After failing all reasonable conservative treatments, it does not make sense to live with horrible pain when replacements are reliable, durable, and reproducible. Improving one's quality of life in such a dramatic way should not be reserved for patients over any arbitrary assigned age.
