In brief: Yes they do
It is a painful procedure but if you need it it is worth it.

In brief: Usually
Surgery of any kind will produce discomfort.
A hip graft is not a simple procedure for the patient to undergo. The fact is, you require a significant amount of bone in order to place dental implants. Speak to your surgeon about your concerns and i'm sure he or she will make you as comfortable before, during, and after the procedure as possible. You'll be fine.
