In brief: In the groin

Usually (but not always), people perceive hip joint pain in their groin or anterior thigh.
Less frequently laterally or posteriorly.

In brief: Depends

Every patient responds differently to hip replacement.
Pain can be noted almost anywhere around the hip and in the thigh muscles. This is often influenced by the surgical approach used. A direct anterior approach is designed to minimize surgical trauma to the hip and muscles. Discuss the different options with your orthopaedic surgeon.
