Summary

The purpose of this research study is to find out if a nerve block called the quadratus lumborum (QL) block can provide pain relief after hip replacement, similar to a lumbar plexus (LP) nerve block that we currently offer patients. There will be two groups in this study: one group will have the QL block placed and the other group will have the LP block placed.
