Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
You can go for knee and hip replacement if she needs it badly. Regarding the surgery, if she can tolerate the stress of surgery or not this can be told only after doing a detailed pre anaesthetic check up.

Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. S S Soni's  Response
She can go for hip replacement first followed by knee replacement,considering she is medically fit. If not fit for some or other reason, get her fit by consulting a physician & get her hip & knee replacement as soon as possible, since she is 76 years old & delaying these surgeries will affect the results, adversly.
