Hip replacement surgery involves replacing the hip joint of the patient with the prosthesis. There are two main types of surgery:
● Total hip replacement
● Partial hip replacement
Even if they have the same procedure, they are performed to treat different conditions.
Total hip replacement generally is used for the treatment of bone diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or osteoarthritis. Total hip replacement surgery is performed because these two diseases have the risk of affecting the hip socket (acetabulum) and femur.
In addition; hip replacement surgery is performed for the treatment of patients with a broken femur. In this surgery, the head of the femur is replaced with a prosthetic implant.
Hip replacement surgery, which is the most common orthopedic surgery of today, is a solution for patients with hip fracture and arthritis pain. In 2014, 332,000 people had this operation in the USA alone.
Hip replacement surgery is recommended if one or more of the following options are available:
● Rheumatoid arthritis
● Avascular necrosis
● Hip fractures ● Certain bone tumors
● Traumatic arthritis
