Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement surgeryis an orthopedic operation that is frequently performed around the world in hospitals. Last year, more than 332.000 total hip replacement surgeries were performed in the USA. 

During the total hip replacement operation, the prosthetic implant is used to modify the patient’s hip. Many patients who are suffering from bone diseases such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis undergo a total hip replacement operation. These diseases are likely to have an effect on the femur in addition to the acetabulum, in other words, the hip socket. Surgeons replace both structures with prosthetic implants during the total hip replacement surgery.

Total Hip Replacement Candidates

Total hip replacement surgery is suggested for patients who are suffering from traumatic arthritis, bone tumors, hip fractures, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, and avascular necrosis.

Am I Suitable for Total Hip Replacement?

For patients who are suffering from a poor state of wellbeing, weight problems, muscle weakness, Parkinson's disease, and patients who have a high risk of infection; this surgery is not suggested.

Preparing for Total Hip Replacement

Before the total hip replacement surgery, patients should not be taking any aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, Omega 3 capsules and should not be smoking for at least 2-3 weeks.

How is Total Hip Replacement Performed?

Total hip replacement protocol states that patients are first administered general anesthesia. When anesthesia starts showing its effect, the doctor makes an incision in order to reach the hip joint, which was damaged by disease.The femur head is carefully removed, and the hip socket or acetabulum is hollowed out with the use of special tools. When this procedure is completed, the implant is replacedwith 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 these stages were completed successfully according to the surgeon, the incision site could be closed, and it is time for the recovery period of total hip replacement.
