What is a hip replacement?

Hip replacement is the surgical procedure of replacing a hip joint with a prosthetic implant. There are two types of hip replacement - Hemi Replacement or Total Replacement. As the name suggests, in a hemi replacement, the surgeon replaces half of the hip joint. But, in a total hip replacement, the surgeon replaces the entire hip joint. Hip replacement is also known as hip arthroplasty and can be considered as a treatment option for your hip pain.

Treatment

Physical examination for Hip Replacement

Diagnosis

During diagnosis, the orthopedic surgeon will evaluate the condition before deciding on the treatment. To evaluate the condition, the surgeon may recommend the following tests and ask about your general health condition.

  • Physical examination - The doctor will assess the mobility, strength and alignment of the hip.
  • Medical history - The orthopedic doctor will gather information about your general health.
  • Imaging tests - Imaging tests like CT scan and MRI will help to evaluate the condition of the bone and tissues of the hip.
  • X-rays - The x-ray images will help in determining the extent of the deformity and damage in the hip.

Surgery

Hip replacement surgery is usually performed under anesthesia. The surgery could be done either in the conventional manner or the minimally invasive way. In the standard conventional technique, 8-10 inches long incisions are made and in minimally invasive technique the incisions are not more than 2-4 inches long.

During hip replacement, the surgeon will make an incision in the front or side of the hip or through the tissue layers of the hip. The surgeon removes the damaged bone and cartilage through the incisions and leaves the healthy bone. The surgeon will then remove the ball portion of the joint by cutting the thighbone.

After removing the damaged parts, the surgeon attaches a replacement socket to the hipbone. The surgeon inserts the new ball part of the thigh bone into the socket part. The surgeon reattaches the muscles and closes the incisions. The surgery usually completes within 60-90 minutes.

What can I do at home after hip replacement surgery for a quick recovery?

You can practice these simple measures to recover well after a hip replacement surgery:

  • Avoid sitting on recliners. Sit straight and firm
  • Limit climbing the stairs.
  • Make the room clutter-free so that there is no risk of falling down.
  • Don't let your pets jump on you until you recover completely.
  • Strictly avoid wearing slippery sandals.
  • Do not lift any weight until the doctor says otherwise.

Anatomy of the hip

The hip, in the simplest language, is a ball and socket joint. The ball which is located at the top of the thigh bone or the femur is known as the femoral head. The socket is a part of the pelvis and is also known as the acetabulum. The ball moves the socket and allows the leg to move backwards, forward and sideways.

When the hip is healthy and normal, the cartilage covers the ball and the socket allowing them to slide gently over each other. In a hip affected by arthritis, the cartilage gets worn down making the movement difficult. A person with an arthritic hip may find it difficult to move or walk. A person with hip arthritis often requires surgery to get relief from the painful condition.

Who is a good candidate for hip replacement?

Ideally, you should consider a hip replacement if you experience constant pain due to the damage in the hip joint. You should consider hip replacement if:

  • Your hip damage is a result of an injury or fracture.
  • You have tried other non-surgical methods but have not received any relief.
  • You are above 18 years of age. There is no upper age limit for the surgery but complications may arise in the case of older people.

On the contrary, the orthopedic surgeon may not consider you a good candidate for hip replacement surgery if:

  • You have a severe illness or any chronic infection.
  • You have any muscle-related chronic disorder.
