TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT

WHAT IS IT?

Total hip replacement or total hip arthroplasty is a surgery where the worn articular surface is removed and a new metal or plastic surface called "prosthesis" is placed. Taking away pain and allowing free movement.

 

WHEN IS TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT RECOMMENDED?

The pain may be such that the person stops using the joint, weakening the muscles around the joint and preventing further movement thereof. From a doctor or through an X-ray examination, we can see how damaged is the joint. Before considering a total joint replacement, we should try other treatments to relieve pain and disability.

Some of the most common causes that lead the doctor to recommend a total hip replacement are:

  • Osteoarthritis (hip tear)
  • Rheumatoid or inflammatory arthritis
  • Hip injuries (fractures or dislocations)
  • Hip disease
