Hip Replacement

Hip Replacement / Resurfacing Surgery

Hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure to replace a diseased hip joint with a prosthetic (artificial) device. This procedure is one of the most commonly performed orthopedic surgeries, particularly among older adults.

Total hip replacement surgery is used to treat hip joints deteriorated by arthritis and aging, damaged by injury or weight problems resulting in immobility and severe pain. Hip replacement surgery replaces the damaged joint, and replaces it with a prosthetic device to help restore stability, function, and pain free movement.

The decision of which type of prosthesic is based more on medical aspects and comorbidities, and age characteristics of patients.

- Cemented
- Cementless
- Hybrid (a combination of cemented and cementless components)

A surgical alternative to hip replacement surgery is hip resurfacing surgery.
