blog details: Hip replacement, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint called a prosthesis. This procedure is typically recommended when conservative treatments, such as medication, physical therapy, or assistive devices, have failed to provide relief for severe hip pain or limited mobility caused by conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, or avascular necrosis. The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint, where the head of the femur (thigh bone) fits into the acetabulum, a socket in the pelvis. During a hip replacement surgery, the damaged femoral head is removed, and a metal or ceramic ball is attached to a stem, which is then inserted into the hollow center of the femur. The acetabulum is also reshaped, and a cup-shaped prosthesis is placed into it. The artificial components are usually made of metal, ceramic, or plastic materials. There are two main types of hip replacement procedures: Total hip replacement (THR): In this procedure, both the femoral head and the acetabulum are replaced with artificial components. Partial hip replacement (hemiarthroplasty): This procedure involves replacing only the femoral head while leaving the original socket intact. It is typically performed when the hip fracture occurs in the femoral head. At Soundarapandian Bone and Joint Hospital, we are well equipped to treat all orthopaedic issues.
