Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is a surgical procedure where a damaged or diseased hip joint is replaced with artificial components. 

Typically performed to alleviate severe pain and improve mobility caused by conditions like arthritis or fractures, the surgery involves removing damaged bone and cartilage and replacing them with prosthetic implants made of metal, plastic, or ceramic. 

This artificial joint mimics the hip’s natural movement, allowing for enhanced function and reduced discomfort. Recovery involves rehabilitation exercises to regain strength and flexibility. 

Hip replacements have proven highly effective in restoring the quality of life for individuals suffering from debilitating hip conditions. 

Advances in surgical techniques and materials continue to improve the outcomes and recovery process for this common and successful procedure.

Some of the most common signs that someone needs hip replacement surgery include:

  • Increased pain and discomfort in your groin or hip
  • Difficulty walking
  • Limited mobility
  • Joint Stiffness
  • Sleep Disturbances

When it comes to hip replacement surgery, you have a few different options.
