About Total Hip Replacement

Total hip replacement (THR) is a treatment option for late-stage degenerative hip disease, also known as osteoarthritis or degenerative arthritis. It is a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint often made from metal and plastic components.

Procedure

The surgical procedure takes a few hours & is performed general anaesthesia. Damaged cartilage and bone are removed and then new metal, plastic, or ceramic implants are positioned to restore the alignment and function of the hip.

  • A cut is made along the side of the hip and the muscles are moved to connect them to the top of the thighbone, exposing the hip joint.
  • Next, the ball portion of the joint is removed by cutting the thighbone with a saw.
  • After this an artificial joint is attached to the thighbone using either cement or a special material that allows the remaining bone to attach to the new joint.
  • Surface of the hipbone is prepared by removing any damaged cartilage and the replacement socket part is attached to the hipbone.
  • The new ball part of the thighbone is then inserted into the socket part of the hip. A drain may be put in to help drain any fluid. The doctor then reattaches the muscles and closes the incision.

After the procedure

Patient will have to stay in the hospital for 6 – 8 days. They will have to stay in bed with a wedge-shaped cushion between the legs to keep the new hip joint in place. Complete recovery can take 6-12 months.
