Hip Replacement

Hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which a damaged or diseased hip joint is replaced with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis. The goal of hip replacement surgery is to relieve pain, improve function, and restore mobility in the hip joint for individuals with severe hip joint problems.

Hip Replacement

The hip joint is a ball-and-socket joint formed by the head of the femur (thighbone) and the acetabulum, a cup-shaped socket in the pelvis. The surfaces of the hip joint are covered with cartilage, which allows for smooth movement. However, conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis, hip fractures, and other hip joint disorders can damage this cartilage and cause pain, stiffness, and loss of mobility. Total hip replacement involves creating a similar ball and socket joint to allow pain free movements at the prosthetic hip joint.

What to expect at the time of your surgery:

During hip replacement surgery, the damaged parts of the hip joint are removed, and they are replaced with artificial components made of metal, ceramic, or plastic. The most common type of hip replacement is a total hip replacement, where both the femoral head and the acetabulum are replaced. In some cases, a partial or hemi-hip replacement may be performed, where only the femoral head is replaced. The surgery is usually performed under spinal or general anesthesia. A multi-disciplinary program to improve the overall recovery following major orthopedic surgery like total hip replacement is in place. It is called Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS).

What to expect after your surgery:

Physical therapy is an essential part of the recovery process, helping patients regain strength, flexibility, and mobility in the hip joint. You will be given full advice and support to follow the physiotherapy exercises and informed about hip precautions to minimise potential complications such as dislocations. You will also be given blood thinning medications to minimise the risk of blood clots.

Hip Replacement FAQ

Will I be able to walk normally after hip replacement surgery?2023-08-04T11:48:27+01:00

Yes, most patients experience a significant improvement in their ability to walk and perform daily activities without hip pain after hip replacement surgery. The goal of the procedure is to provide pain free mobility and function of the hip joint.

What are the potential risks of hip replacement surgery?2023-07-24T14:22:30+01:00

Like any surgical procedure, hip replacement surgery carries some risks, including infection, blood clots, implant loosening, dislocation, and nerve or blood vessel damage. However, serious complications are relatively rare.

How long do hip replacements last?2023-08-04T11:49:09+01:00

The longevity of hip replacements varies depending on several factors, including the patient’s age, activity level, and overall health. In general, modern hip replacements can last for 15 to 20 years with proper care and lifestyle modifications.

Can I resume normal activities after hip replacement surgery?2023-08-04T11:50:31+01:00

Many patients can resume normal activities and low-impact exercises after recovering from hip replacement surgery. However, high-impact activities and certain sports need to be avoided to protect the longevity of the artificial joint and to avoid potential complications.
