About Hip Replacement

In a total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty), the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.

  • The damaged femoral head is removed and replaced with a metal stem that is placed into the hollow center of the femur. The femoral stem may be either cemented or “press fit” into the bone.
  • A metal or ceramic ball is placed on the upper part of the stem. This ball replaces the damaged femoral head that was removed.
  • The damaged cartilage surface of the socket (acetabulum) is removed and replaced with a metal socket. Screws or cement are sometimes used to hold the socket in place.
  • A plastic, ceramic, or metal spacer is inserted between the new ball and the socket to allow for a smooth gliding surface.

Hip replacement surgery Types

The need for a hip replacement arises when a part or the whole hip joint decays to the extent of complete dysfunction. There are various types of hip replacement surgeries, which will be explained to you in detail at the clinic during your consultation. However, you can take a look at what each surgery involves, to have a fair idea about the most common types.

Total or Primary Hip Replacement: A total hip replacement surgery involves the replacement of the complete hip joint or or even one side of the joint.

Complex Hip Replacement: A complex surgery is done for those who suffer from obesity, muscular conditions and even certain neurological problems associated with morphological bone deformities.

Revision Hip Replacement: A revision hip replacement surgery refers to a corrective surgery of a previous replacement in case the prosthesis is wears off or if the previous surgery is faulty.
