If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a
fracture, or other conditions, common activities
such as walking or getting in and out of a chair
may be painful and difficult. Total hip
replacement (or hip arthroplasty) is a technique
that has become widespread in recent years in
response to the need for improving hip joints
that have been damaged by injury or arthritis.
Joint replacement surgery may offer the best
treatment option for long-term improvement for
the hip joint when other treatments have proven
inadequate. In most cases, having a total hip
replacement reduces joint pain and means a
return to pain-free movement.
In Total Hip Replacement procedure removes a
painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it
with an artificial joint often made from metal
and plastic components. It can be performed
traditionally or by using what is considered a
minimally-invasive technique.The main difference
between the two procedures is the size of the
incision. It usually is done when all other
treatment options have failed to provide
adequate pain relief.The procedure should relieve
a painful hip joint, making walking easier.
What causes hip pain? The human hip is a ball and
socket joint. It is the most flexible and
free-moving joint in the body, and can move
backwards and forwards, to the side, and can
perform twisting motions. Full function of the
hip is dependent on the coordination of bones,
muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves. Hip pain
can be caused by a variety of factors,
including .An injury that does not heal
properly. .A chronic illness. .Normal wear and
tear from years of constant use. .Severe
arthritic conditions, especially osteoarthritis.
.Injuries as a result of trauma, such as a hip
fracture or dislocation caused by a fall.
.Osteoarthritis .Rheumatoid arthritis
.Post-traumatic arthritis If medications,
changes in your everyday activities, and the use
of walking supports do not adequately help your
symptoms, you may consider hip replacement
surgery. Hip replacement surgery is a safe and
effective procedure that can relieve your pain,
increase motion, and help you get back to
enjoying normal, everyday activities.
Is Hip Replacement Surgery for You?
The decision to have hip replacement surgery
should be a cooperative one made by you, your
family, your primary care doctor, and your
orthopaedic surgeon.The process of making this
decision typically begins with a referral by
your doctor to an orthopaedic surgeon for an
initial evaluation. Candidates for
Surgery There are no absolute age or weight
restrictions for total hip replacements. Recommend
ations for surgery are based on a patient's pain
and disability, not age. Most patients who
undergo total hip replacement are age 50 to 80,
but orthopaedic surgeons evaluate patients
individually. Total hip replacements have been
performed successfully at all ages, from the
young teenager with juvenile arthritis to the
elderly patient with degenerative
arthritis. When Surgery Is Recommended? There
are several reasons why your doctor may recommend
hip replacement surgery. People who benefit from
hip replacement surgery often have An
