Total Hip replacement Surgery
The main purpose of total hip replacement or arthroplasty is to give patients suffering from arthritis or any other disabling orthopedic hip problem, relief from the discomfort and pain; enhance stability and improve the function. The total hip replacement surgery was first initiated in the 1960s and since then it has received continuous improvement over the past decades.
Total hip replacement surgery is a very common procedure in India that enjoys a very high success rate. Here the damaged ball and socket joint in arthritic hip is replaced by a ceramic or metallic ball and plastic or ceramic socket. The ball has a metal stem as attachment to be fitted with the femur and the socket is implanted in the pelvis.
