Hip Replacement

Total Hip Replacement (THR) is a surgical procedure that replaces the damaged cartilage of the hip joint with artificial components, restoring mobility and relieving pain. It’s typically recommended for patients experiencing chronic hip pain and limited mobility due to conditions like severe arthritis.

Causes for hip arthritis vary, including trauma, avascular necrosis, infection, aging, rheumatoid arthritis, congenital anomalies, and certain medications like chronic steroid use.

When conservative treatments fail to provide relief, THR becomes a viable option, offering significant benefits in pain reduction and functional restoration.

Minimal Invasive Total Hip Replacement (MITHR) is an advanced technique involving smaller incisions, leading to advantages such as reduced soft tissue damage, less blood loss, quicker recovery, and lower postoperative pain.

A hip replacement, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace a damaged or worn-out hip joint with an artificial implant to relieve pain and improve mobility.

Hip replacement is typically recommended for individuals suffering from severe hip pain and stiffness due to conditions like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, or avascular necrosis, when other treatments have failed to provide relief.

The primary benefits of hip replacement surgery include reduced pain, improved mobility, enhanced quality of life, and the ability to resume daily activities without limitations.

Recovery from hip replacement surgery involves a period of rehabilitation, which includes physical therapy, pain management, and gradually increasing activity levels. Most patients can expect to return to normal activities within a few weeks to months, depending on individual factors.

While hip replacement is generally considered safe, like any surgery, it carries some risks, including infection, blood clots, dislocation of the hip joint, nerve damage, and implant wear or loosening over time. Your orthopedic surgeon will discuss these risks and precautions to minimize them before the procedure.
