In brief: Absolutely

While a complex hip operation, a fusion can be converted successfully to a hip replacement.
Be sure to see a surgeon well versed in this procedure to minimize your risk of complications.

In brief: Yes

See a hip specialist who has done many of theses.
It is not a straight forward/routine operation. For the success of the operation one factor is important: preserved buttock (abductor )muscles.
