Hip Joint Replacement

Joint Replacement Surgery

A joint is where two or more parts of the skeleton are fitted together, like the knee, hip, and shoulder. Joint replacement surgery is removing a damaged joint and replacing it with a new one. Shalby Hospital offers a wide range of treatments including Joint Replacement Surgery and Shalby is the best hospital for hip replacement surgery in India.

Hip Replacement Surgery

Arthritis is a progressive disorder which in medical term means ‘inflammation of the joint’. Hip Replacement is a treatment done when all other pain management therapies fail to mitigate the pain caused by the arthritis of the Hip. Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by an artificial prosthetic implant. Such joint replacement surgeries are generally conducted to relieve pain caused by arthritis or severe physical damage such as hip fracture. After the Hip Replacement surgery, the patient retains all normal motions and movements that one may need to carry out daily tasks. It is also referred to as Total Hip Arthroplasty or Total Hip Replacement.

Why Total Hip Replacement (THR) or Total Hip Arthroplasty

Osteoarthritis of the hip joint, is one of the most common reasons people opt for Hip Replacement Surgery. Hip Replacement is the only option if there is severe pain, loss of motion or deformity of the hip joint. Hip replacement can also be considered to treat people suffering from hip injuries, rheumatoid arthritis and other medical conditions, such as bone tumour or bone-loss due to insufficient blood supply (avascular necrosis).

Symptoms that require hip replacement:

  • Pain that keeps one awake at night
  • Little or no relief from pain medications
  • Difficulty walking up or down the stairs
  • Trouble standing from a seated position
  • Having to stop walking because of pain

There was a time when a hip replacement was considered an option only for elderly people aged 60 and above. But latest advancements in medical technology has made strong and longer lasting artificial joints available to even active and younger people. However, the patient must also face the possibility of undergoing another surgery after 15 to 20 years to replace the worn out artificial hip joint.

Preparing for THR

Prior to the total hip replacement surgery, our orthopaedic (hip replacement) surgeon counsels the patient in person and carries out necessary examination and evaluation. The hip replacement surgeon then thoroughly checks the patient’s medical history to ensure they are healthy enough to undergo surgery, and mitigates any risks of unexpected complications. The surgeon then physically examines the hip, paying attention to range of motion in the joint and strength of the muscles around the hip. Blood tests, X-ray or other radiological investigations are routine procedures that are carried out as required.
