Hip replacement is a medical procedure wherein the worn out hip joint is removed through a surgery followed by a prosthetic implantation. A hip replacement surgery becomes essential in cases where medications, therapies, and exercises haven’t proved of any help and are recommended to patients with severe hip damage. Hip replacement surgery is the most commonly carried out orthopedic operation and can be partial or total.
When is it done?
The various situations where a hip replacement surgery becomes important are:
- Avascular necrosis
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Hip bone fractures
A damage or displacement in the hip bones could make the movement of lower body really difficult and meddle with the daily activities.
Some of the risks involved in a joint replacement surgery are same as that in an infection or a blood clot. Other risks may include –
- Dislocation – Since the replacement for the damaged hip is artificial or man-made, there may be a chance where these may get dislocated because of certain activities, if the size of the femoral head is small.
- Loosening – There could be cases of loosening of the prosthetic implant and surgery might be required as a cure.
- Fracture – The patient runs the risk of hip joint fracture during the surgery.
- Difference in the length of the lower limbs
