Overview: Hip Replacement Treatment and Surgery
The hips are the body’s largest weight bearing joints. They consist of 2 main parts; femoral head at the top of the thigh-bone that fits into the rounded socket in the pelvis. Bands of the tissue known as ligaments connect the ball to socket and give stability to the joint.
Hip Replacement Surgery involves replacing the hip-joint that has been worn away by injury or arthritis. Prosthesis substitutes for hip-joint permitting smooth and frictionless movement. It is generally performed when all the other treatment options have failed to give adequate pain relief. The procedure should relieve the painful hip-joint, make walking easier and increase mobility and function of the damaged hip joint.
Hip replacement is also advised as golden standard for hip arthritis for patients above 65 years and the patients with advanced hip damage. Cost of hip replacement surgery in India starts from US$ 5,000 and varies depending on the implant, surgeon, amenities and the town where the patient chooses to get the surgery done.
A patient can opt to undergo the bilateral hip replacement surgery in India; however, it is generally conducted in 2 parts. On the other hand, the unilateral hip replacement is performed in a single surgery.
Procedure of Hip Replacement Treatment
The procedure is performed under general anesthesia. A cut is made on the lateral side of the hip. The round upper part of thigh bone also known as femur head is removed and replaced with the implant and then it is stabilized into the correct place by cementing or various other methods. The part of hip-joint receiving the ball component that is acetabulum also known as socket is smoothened and prepared, and implant is placed to the position and stabilized. The socket and ball components are then joined. The duration of surgery is about two to four hours depending on the severity of the disease.
