What is Hip Replacement?

Hip replacement or hip arthroplasty is a surgical process of replacing damaged hip joints with artificial implants or prosthesis. There are two major types of hip replacement: Unilateral Hip Replacement and Bilateral Hip Replacement. These surgeries aim to improve movement, increase the range of motion, enhance mobility, and reduce pain.

Hip replacement is recommended for people who experience chronic hip pain and stiffness.

Some of the most common conditions requiring hip replacement include:

  • Osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease)
  • Rheumatoid arthritis (joint inflammatory disease)
  • Hip fractures
  • Avascular necrosis (death of bone tissue)
  • Childhood hip disease
  • Hip dysplasia, and severe joint pain that limits daily activities.

Types of Hip Replacement Surgery

When medications and other treatments are no longer effective, hip replacement surgery becomes a viable option. Below are the different types of hip replacement surgery:

1. Unilateral Hip Replacement:

Also known as hemiarthroplasty, this procedure involves replacing only the femoral head (ball of hip joint). It is often performed in cases of hip fractures. It has a lower risk of blood loss.

2. Bilateral Hip Replacement:

This is the most common type, in which both the acetabulum (hip socket) and the femoral head (thigh bone head) are replaced with prosthetic components.

3. Revision Hip Replacement:

It is a surgical procedure performed to replace a previously implanted artificial hip joint. It is a little more complicated compared to other hip replacements.

4. Hip Arthroscopy:

It is a one day procedure in which a device called arthroscope is used to diagnose and treat hip problems.

Some of the different types of hip implants that can be categorised by their manufacturing country are Indian Implants and US FDA Implants.

Age of the patient and medical condition

The cost of hip replacement surgery varies by age. Younger patients (25-55 years old) tend to have lower costs due to better health, while patients aged 60-65 usually face higher costs due to additional health conditions.

Pre-surgical and Post-surgical Expenses in a Hip Replacement Surgery in India

In addition to the hip replacement surgery itself, there are various pre-surgical and post-surgical expenses to consider. Here are the typical costs associated with hip replacement surgery in India:

Pre-Surgical Expenses:

  • Consultation: INR 1000 to INR 2,000 (USD 18 to USD 36)
  • Evaluation: INR 5,000 to INR 10,000 (USD 90 to USD 180)

Post-Surgical Expenses:

  • Follow-up consultations and physiotherapy(2-3 weeks): INR 2,000 - INR 6,000 (USD 18 - USD 108)
  • Medication:  INR 2000 - INR 5000 (USD 18 - USD 90)
  • Supportive Devices (crutches, walkers): INR 1,000 - INR 5,000 (USD 18 - USD 90)
  • Physiotherapy: INR 10,000 - INR 40,000 (USD 180 - USD 1200)

These costs can vary depending on the hospital type, its location, and specific patient needs.

What Should be Post-surgery Care?

Recovering from hip replacement surgery is a gradual process, taking 2 weeks to a month for most people. Many start walking the day after the surgery to prevent stiffness. Pain levels typically decrease after 1-2 weeks.

After leaving the hospital, you'll need to do physiotherapy exercises at home. As you gain strength, your therapist will add more activities. With a successful recovery, you should be able to do most physical activities within 6-8 weeks. Consistency with your physiotherapy routine is essential for a smooth recovery.

Here are some of the measures patients should follow soon after hip replacement surgery:

  • Take pain meds as prescribed.
  • Do physiotherapy exercises to regain strength and movement.
  • Walk with help (walker/crutches) and progress to independent walking.
  • Wear compression stockings to prevent blood clots.
  • Keep the incision clean and dry to avoid infection.

Does Health Insurance Cover Hip Replacement Surgery?

Yes, health insurance typically covers hip replacement surgery, but the extent of coverage can vary depending on your insurance plan and provider. Make sure that you submit your doctor's prescription, investigation reports, admission form, and health insurance papers to the insurance company.

The Health Insurance typically includes expenses like:

  • Hospital stay
  • Surgeon's fee
  • Anaesthesia fees
  • Implant costs (basic implant costs might be covered, but advanced materials or technology might need a co-pay).

Some health insurance plans have a waiting period of 1-4 years for pre-existing medical conditions. So, it is very important to read your policies before surgery to understand your coverage details.

Frequently Asked Qestions Related to Total Hip Replacement Thr Cost

Most patients start to walk short distances with support (crutches or canes) after a few hours of surgery or the next day.

Recovery is a gentle process, so follow your orthopaedic doctor's instructions for post operative care, engage in physiotherapy, and slowly increase activity while getting adequate rest.

A new hip joint typically lasts 15-20 years or more, depending on factors like patient activity and implant type. Regular follow-up with your orthopaedic surgeon helps monitor its condition.

For less severe conditions, medication, injections, physiotherapy, and lifestyle changes might be explored first.

Consider discussing a hip replacement with your doctor if you have severe hip pain that limits your daily life and conservative treatments have failed.

Engaging in low-impact activities such as swimming, walking, and cycling is encouraged, while high-impact activities such as football, basketball, and tennis should be avoided as they put tension on the new joints and should be done only with your orthopaedic doctor's advice.

Yes, in some cases, both hips can be replaced at the same time. This is called a simultaneous bilateral total hip replacement. It's not as common as a single hip replacement, but it can be an option for certain patients.
