Hip Replacement

Hip Replacement

Hemi/Total Hip Replacement

During a hemiarthroplasty, the hip joint's inferior half is replaced surgically. The terms "arthroplasty" and "hemi" stand for "joint replacement," respectively. Total hip replacement refers to the replacement of the entire hip joint (THR). A hip fracture is often treated with a hemiarthroplasty.

Cemented/Uncemented Hip Replacement

The method by which the prosthetic implant is secured to the native bone varies between cemented and uncemented hip arthroplasties. Bone cement is used in a cemented hip arthroplasty to secure the implants to the bone interface.

Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgeries are carried out using a technique known as minimally invasive hip replacement. A smaller surgical cut is used. Less hip-supporting muscles are also severed or disconnected.

Hip Re-surfacing

Hip replacement surgery includes hip resurfacing. In order to relieve hip stiffness and discomfort brought on by osteoarthritis and other disorders, implants are employed. The implants replace the broken bone and tissue, enabling more fluid mobility. The greatest candidates for hip resurfacing are men under 60.

Revision for Aseptic Loosening/Infection

Aseptic loosening is the term for joint prosthetic failure that doesn't have a mechanical or infectious origin. Osteolysis (bone resorption) and an inflammatory cellular reaction within the joint are frequently linked to it.

Evaluation of Painful Hip Post Hip Replacement

Gait analysis, paying specific attention to antalgic or Trendelenburg gait, assessment of hip joint range of motion and pain, strength testing of the muscles surrounding the hip joint, palpation of the painful area, and other special tests as needed should all be included in a physical examination.
