Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgery is performed where the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant, also called a hip prosthesis. Hip replacement can be performed in two forms such as complete hip replacement and (half) Hemi-replacement. In such conditions, it is important to have an orthopedic surgeon specializing in hip replacement.

How do you know if you need a hip replacement?

If you have these arthritis symptoms, you should consider a hip replacement:
  • severe hip pain that is not relieved by medication and that interferes with your work, sleep or everyday activity
  • hip stiffness that restricts motion and makes it difficult to walk

What are the different types of hip replacement surgery?

The three major types of hip replacement are:
  • total hip replacement (most common)
  • partial hip replacement
  • hip resurfacing
The most common type of hip replacement surgery is called a total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty). In this surgery, worn-out or damaged sections of your hip are replaced with artificial implants. The socket is replaced with a durable plastic cup, which may or may not also include a titanium metal shell. Your femoral head will be removed and replaced with a ball made from ceramic or a metal alloy. The new ball is attached to a metal stem that is inserted into the top of your femur.Two other types of hip replacement surgeries are each generally appropriate for patients of specific age groups and activity levels:Partial hip replacement (also called hemiarthroplasty) involves replacing only one side of the hip joint – the femoral head – instead of both sides as in total hip replacement. This procedure is most commonly done in older patients

Can I have both hips replaced at the same time?

Yes, healthy patients younger than 75 years old who have no history of cardiopulmonary disease may be able to have both hips replaced at once. In some cases, however, it may be better to stage the surgeries.

What are hip implants made of?

There are three separate implants: the stem, the ball and the socket.
  1. The stem, made out of metal (usually titanium or cobalt-chrome) is inserted into your natural thighbone.
  2. The ball is usually made out of polished metal or ceramic, and fits on top of the stem.
  3. The socket is usually a combination of a plastic liner and a cobalt-chrome or titanium backing.

    How long do hip implants last?

    Generally speaking, a hip replacement prosthesis should remain effective for between 10 and 20 years, and some can last even longer.Results vary according to the type of implant and the age of the patient. In a 2008 study of more than 50,000 patients who had THR surgery at age 55 or older, between 71% and 94% still had well-working implants after 15 years.
