Hip Replacement at best of Hospitals and Wellness centres

About the procedure

Hip replacement is a surgical procedure to relieve arthritis pain or to treat hip injuries. 

The surgery involves replacing the painful hip joint with an artificial joint made with metal 

or plastic to help you with the pain that can't be controlled by medications and improves 

its function. The surgery takes 1-1.5 hours.  

The surgery is generally performed by making a 8-10 inch cut along the side of the hip 

but recently doctors have been using minimally invasive technique that includes making  

two 2-5 inch long cuts.   


Why the procedure? 


Hip replacement surgery may be required- 

●if you have a hip fracture. 

●If you have severe pain in your hip that is not relieved by medications 

●If it is difficult for you to perform daily tasks like walking, sitting. 

●Incase of Osteoarthritis or Rheumatoid arthritis. 

●If you have any hip stiffness that prevents you to move comfortably. 



Types of procedure 


The 3 major types are- 

1.Total hip replacement- The most common type of hip replacement where the 

diseased ball and socket is replaced with an implant.  

2.Partial hip replacement- When only a ball part of the hip is replaced not the 

socket. This type of surgery is performed to treat certain types of hip fractures.  

3.Hip resurfacing- In hip resurfacing, the femoral head (highest part of the bone) 

is not removed. But instead capped with a metal covering. It is considered as a 

more conservative procedure.  

4.Revision Joint replacement surgery- As the name suggests, revision surgery 

involves replacing the original joint replaced with new component. It can be 

performed to manage complication like infection from a hip replacement.
