What is Hip Replacement?
Hip replacement surgery, also known as total hip arthroplasty, may be an option for you if your hip discomfort is interfering with your everyday activities and nonsurgical therapies haven't helped or are no longer effective. The most prevalent reason for hip replacement is arthritis deterioration.
It needs a surgery.
The hip replacement procedures can be majorly categorized into 3 major types:
Replacement of the whole hip joint: A complete hip replacement is the most frequent form of hip replacement surgery (also called total hip arthroplasty). Artificial implants are used to replace worn-out or damaged parts of your hip during this procedure. A strong plastic cup replaces the socket, which may or may not contain a titanium metal casing. Our femoral head will be taken out and replaced with a ceramic or metal alloy ball. A metal stem is put into the top of your femur, and the replacement ball is connected to it.
Partially replaced hip: Instead of replacing both sides of the hip joint, partial hip replacement (also known as hemiarthroplasty) replaces only one side of the hip joint - the femoral head. This surgery is most often performed on elderly individuals who have suffered a hip fracture.
Resurfacing of the hips: In younger, more active patients, femoral head and socket resurfacing is the most prevalent procedure.
