Total Hip Replacement

Compare 23 clinics

Total hip replacement surgery is a very common orthopaedic procedure performed in medical centres all around the world – last year over 332.000 surgeries were performed in the United States alone.
Total hip replacement surgery is a type of medical procedure in which the patient’s hip structure is replaced with a prosthetic implant. Most patients that opt for this procedure suffer from bone disease such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. These diseases tend to affect the femur as well as the acetabulum, also known as the hip socket – both of these components will be replaced with prosthetic implants through this surgery.

The procedure is recommended for patients suffering from:
• Traumatic arthritis
• Bone tumours
• Hip fractures
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Osteoarthritis
• Avascular necrosis

Preparing for Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement precautions state that aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, green teas, Omega 3 capsules and smoking need to be avoided for at least 2-3 weeks before undergoing the total hip replacement surgery.

How is Total Hip Replacement Performed?

Total hip replacement protocol states that patients are first administered general anesthesia. Once the anesthesia kicks in, the surgeon will create an incision to reach the hip joint damaged by disease. The femur head is carefully removed and the hip socket or acetabulum is hollowed out with the use of special tools. Once this step is over the doctor will place the implant, with the femoral stem cemented into the patient’s own healthy femur. The patient’s range of motion is checked in order to make any necessary corrections. If the surgeon is satisfied with the result, the incision can be closed and the total hip replacement recovery period can begin.
