About Hip Replacement
Hip Replacement Surgery replaces the hip joint (or part of it) with an artificial implant (prosthesis). It is commonly used in adults who have failed other treatments, such as using a cane or walker, weight loss, medication, and physical therapy. It is done to completely remove the femoral head and the hip joint causing difficulty is replaced with a brand new artificial hip joint. The prosthesis or implant is then inserted along with a replacement cup and ball. The new ball here is attached to the shaft and can be built into the hip bone.
Types of Hip Replacement Surgery include:
- Total Hip Replacement: This procedure completely removes the naturally damaged intra-articular joint. It is replaced with an artificial joint. This surgery completely relieves hip pain and improves your quality of life. However, recovery from total hip replacement surgery takes a long time.
- Partial Hip Replacement: Part of the damaged hip joint is removed and replaced with an artificial joint. Recovery from a partial hip replacement takes less time than a total hip replacement.
- Hip Resurfacing: This is another method of total hip replacement surgery. Useful for realigning damaged spheroid joints rather than completely replacing them. This is achieved by creating a larger-than-usual hip ball, which helps prevent adduct dislocation dislocations.
- Double Hip Replacement: Also, called bilateral total hip replacement, it is performed on both hips.
- Correction of Hip Replacement: Temporary hip replacement may not work. Or the prosthesis attached to the first joint area does not work well. It can dislocate or cause an infection. The surgeon can then perform another operation. This surgery is considered a revision hip replacement. It is intended to correct the problem with primary surgery.
- Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement: The goal is to achieve the same benefits as a total or partial hip replacement. Surgery ensures that the patient recovers and is ready to return to normal life as soon as possible. This operation is performed using small tools and instruments. These are inserted through several small incisions around the hip joint rather than through one large incision.
- Common hip problems. It can even lead to osteoarthritis.
- Benign and malignant bone tumors.
- Rheumatoid arthritis.
- Death of hip bones.
- Hip fracture.
- Paget's disease, which is common in older people.
- Bones that become enlarged and weakened by hip deformities and fractures.
• Blood Clots: Blood clots may form in your leg veins after surgery. This is dangerous because blood clots can break up and travel to the lungs, heart, or rarely the brain. Anticoagulants can reduce this risk.
• Infections: Infections can occur at the incision site and deeper tissues near the new hip. Most infections are treated with antibiotics, but serious infections near the new hip may require surgery to remove and replace the prosthesis.
• Fractures: A healthy portion of the spheroid joint may break during surgery. Fractures may be small enough to heal on their own, but larger fractures may need to be fixed with wires, screws, and sometimes metal plates or bone grafts.
• Dislocation: In certain positions, especially in the first few months after surgery, the ball of the new joint can come out of its socket. If the hip is dislocated, a brace can help keep it in place. If the hip dislocates repeatedly, surgery is also needed to stabilize it. • Changed leg length: Surgeons take steps to avoid this problem, but sometimes a new hip can make one leg longer or shorter than the other. It is often caused by contractures of the muscles around the lower back. In these cases, gradual strengthening and stretching of these muscles can help. A slight difference in leg length usually becomes less noticeable after a few months.
• Looseness: This complication is rare with new implants, but the new joint may not be firmly attached to the bone or may loosen over time, causing hip pain. Surgery may be required to correct the problem.
• Nerve Injury: In rare cases, nerve damage in the area where the implant was placed is common. Nerve damage can cause numbness, weakness, and pain.
A physical examination and an intensive history can help doctors recognize the relationship between pain symptoms and hip history and stress. Doctors look for instability or damage and locate tendons and hip joints. Additionally, based on suspected or known causes of pain, the doctor recommends one or more professional tests to make a diagnosis of hip arthroplasty.

- CT scan (computed tomography).
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Note : This is an approximate cost and may vary depending on various condition of the patient health after physical evaluation.
There may be an increased risk of blood clots in the legs after surgery. Other risks include embolism and infections. However, a combination of early mobilization (early rise), use of compression stockings to prevent clots from forming in the leg veins, and medication can manage this risk. These risks are rare, occurring in about 1% of cases each.
Success rates vary depending on the patient's condition and the surgeon's experience. Total Hip Replacement surgery has low risk factors and a very high success rate. Hip implants typically last 15 to 20 years, depending on the standard of the implant used. Usually a hip replacement patient he fully recovers within 6 months.
