Total Hip Replacement

  • What is Total Hip Replacement?

    Artificial hip replacement surgery involves replacing the femur (head of the thigh bone) and the acetabulum (hip socket) with artificial joint components. The artificial femur part (ball and stem) is made of strong metal or ceramic, while the artificial socket is made of polyethylene (durable, wear-resistant plastic) or metal with a plastic liner. The ball and socket are designed to glide together to replicate the hip joint.

  • You may need hip replacement surgery when hip arthritis limits your everyday activities such as walking and bending, resting without pain, or moving and lifting your leg without stiffness. Hip replacement is recommended only after careful diagnosis of your joint problem. Surgery is likely needed when you have little pain relief from non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or if other treatments, such as physical therapy, do not relieve hip pain.
