    Hip arthroplasty, or hip replacement, is a surgical procedure that aims to treat pain in the hip joint by replacing some parts of the joint with artificial implants. The hip joint consists of a ball at the top of the femur and the socket in the pelvis.  The surgery involves the replacement of one or both of these parts to allow the patient to resume daily activities and exercises with significantly less pain

    How to prepare for a hip replacement surgery?

    In your preoperative consultation, your orthopedic surgeon will provide instructions to prepare for your hip replacement. A medical coordinator from Pristyn Care’s team will be in touch with you before the surgery to ensure you are on track with preparations for your hip replacement surgery. Preparing your home before you have your surgery will make things easier when you return home after your surgery. If you live alone, you should arrange for someone to stay with you for 3 to 4 weeks. Stocking up on groceries and your essentials for 4 to 6 weeks is also recommended.

    Your hip surgeon will explain the procedure, risks, and benefits of hip replacement surgery to you, and all your doubts about the same will be addressed so that you can make a fully informed decision. After you have decided to undergo the surgery, your surgeon will analyze your entire medical history and carry out a few diagnostic tests and scans to ensure that you are in good health and are eligible to undergo the surgery.

    You will be ordered not to eat anything for 8 hours prior to the surgery and will be given anesthesia before the surgery, which will put you to sleep during the surgery. Apart from this, the orthopedic surgeon may request some other specific precautions based on your case.

    What happens during a hip replacement surgery?

    You will be given general or spinal anesthesia so that you will remain asleep during the surgery and the doctor or nurse will carefully monitor your vitals, like your blood pressure and heart rate throughout the surgery. Once the anaesthesia has been administered, the surgeon will make an incision over the side of the hip to remove the damaged hip joint and replace it with an artificial hip implant.  Before closing the incision, the surgeon will check if the implant has been positioned properly.

    Most orthopedic surgeons prefer MIS or minimally invasive techniques to perform the hip replacement surgery. During a MIS hip replacement, the surgeon makes 1 or 2 small incisions instead of a large incision, which helps prevent damage to the surrounding muscles, tendons and tissues. Special medical instruments are used to remove and replace the diseased or damaged hip joint through a smaller incision. MIS hip replacement is as safe and effective as traditional hip surgery and if followed by significantly less postoperative pain and downtime.

    Insurance coverage for hip replacement surgery

    Most insurance companies cover the cost of hip replacement surgeries,  but the exact details of the cover depend on your health insurance policy. To know the amount of insurance cover, talk to your insurance provider and discuss your treatment plan.

    Recovery after hip replacement surgery

    Immediately after your hip replacement surgery, you will be taken to a recovery room, where you will be kept under observation until your vital signs, including heart rate and blood pressure normalize. Most patients feel comfortable to walk on their own, or using walking aid the same day after the surgery. Rehabilitation will begin in the hospital itself, right after the surgery. Prior to your discharge, you will be prescribed medications for pain, to prevent infection and boost recovery. Hospitalisation after minimally invasive hip replacement surgery is usually 3-5 days and most patients are able to return to their regular life in 3 to 5 weeks. Before your discharge, your orthopedic surgeon will refer you to a physiotherapist who will help you restore maximum function and mobility after the surgery

    India

    Over  70,000 hip procedures take place every year in India.  http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/articleshow/60094167.cms?utm_source=contentofinterest&utm_medium=text&utm_campaign=cppst

    Based on their review of the data, researchers predicted that the total annual counts (95% prediction intervals) of total hip arthroplasty may increase by 34% in 2020 (to 498,000 replacements) and by 75% in 2025 (to 652,000 replacements). https://www.rheumatologyadvisor.com/home/topics/osteoarthritis/increased-rate-of-total-joint-replacements-predicted-from-2020-to-2040/
