When Hip replacement is required?

Hip replacementHip replacement surgery is necessary when cartilage is severely damaged, smooth surface is lost and  the bone is left  exposed due to the inflammation of the joint. As cartilage wears off patient suffers from extremely intense pain and discomfort which limits the range of motion making it difficult to walk, take stairs and perform regular activities.

Hip replacement is seen as highly effective solution to fix physical joint damage when physical therapy or other non-surgical methods do not help.

Structure of hip joint

The hip joint is constructed of two bones, the head of femur (thigh bone) and the acetabulum (the socket). It is a ball and socket joint. The ball of the joint is made of the lump placed at the end of the thigh bone, commonly referred to as femoral head. It fits the circle socket of the pelvis, forming a strong and highly flexible construction that supports person's weight and allows him to move easily without any pain or friction.

The socket and the femoral head are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth cushioning material.

The femur is connected to the pelvis with ligaments whereas muscles that surround the hip joint are linked with bones through tendons. The whole hip joint is enclosed in a synovial membrane which generates fluid that provide the joint with nutrients.

Hip replacement surgery

Hip replacement surgery is a procedure when  femoral head and the socket are replaced with prosthetic. Surgeon selects a model, materials and size of the implant according to each individual case.

The surgery is divided into two parts. At first, acetabulum (the socket) is prepared. Surgeon removes impaired cartilage and bone, then blood and fat is cleaned and the area is dried. Afterwards cement, (if it is used) is put in the bone and implant (acetabular cap, also called acetabular shell) is inserted.

The second part of the surgery involves femoral preparation during which surgeon removes the femoral head and makes a passage. When the area is cleaned and dried,  2 implants are inserted. Firstly, femoral stem implant and then the ball (femoral head) which is placed on the top of femoral stem. It can be done either using cement or without it, in this case implants are forced firmly into the hollow centre of the femur. As all the implants are inserted, the ball is put into the socket and the hip joint prosthesis is stabilised and secured.

Hip replacement surgeries have very high success ratio and can return high comfort of movement. Immediately after the surgery patient feels great pain relief.

Rehabilitation after hip replacement

For about 2 months you are not allowed to put weight on the hip, it means that you will have to use crutches. When the pain relieves and you are able to move more or less independently you will have to do exercises assigned by the physician. Rehabilitation usually takes 6 months.
