Rheumatoid arthritis

Having Rheumatoid Arthitis nearly 24 years. My both hip joints are effected and left leg is 2 inches short due to a vascular necrosis in both hip joints. I have severe pain and stiffness. Doctor suggested both hip joints replacement. I want to know your opinion. Is any way apart from operation? Is replacement safe ?
