Treatment

How is Hip Replacement diagnosed?

The orthopedic surgeon will ask you to have some tests before hip replacement surgery, including-

  • X-Ray
  • MRI
  • Echocardiogram

These imaging tests will help in better diagnosis of the condition, the surgeon will suggest the best suitable treatment option for you after evaluating your condition based on the test results.

Surgery

The patient will be given general or spinal anesthesia so that he or she does not feel any pain or discomfort during the surgery. The orthopedic surgeon will make an incision over the outside of the hip, cutting through the skin and muscle. The surgeon may make 1 or 2 small incisions of 3 to 4 inches. Best uncemented implants are used during the procedure. With the use of the latest technology and surgical approach, the patient would be able to walk the next day after surgery. Orthopedic experts recommend physiotherapy for proper recovery after the surgery.

In Our Doctor's Word

Dr. Ashish Taneja

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

17 Years Experience

"While hip replacement surgery is now increasingly becoming a more popular choice, a common thread among all is the delay. Patients keep living through the worst of arthritis and injuries but see hip replacement as only the last option. I think this is also because they feel a replacement does not look natural or will last only a few years. This is completely untrue. A good hip replacement surgery lasts an average of 20-25 years and looks and feels very natural. Also, it's a myth that you will take months to start walking again. The truth is, you can walk the same day and recover completely within 10 days. So my honest advice is, if you really want the surgery, don't delay it. It will only further the complications and serve no benefit. "

Frequently Asked Questions

Is hip replacement surgery painful?

The hip replacement procedure is performed under general anesthesia. So the surgery itself is not painful at all. However, the patient may experience some pain and discomfort after the procedure as their body adjusts to the prosthesis, which is not entirely uncommon and entirely manageable.

How long does it take to recover from total hip surgery?

Hip replacement recovery takes about 2-4 weeks normally, but this is dependent on a lot of factors such as the patient’s age, health, pre-existing medical conditions, nutrition, lifestyle, etc. Recovery may take longer in patients who are diabetic or habitual smokers, etc.

What is the anterior approach for the hip replacement procedure?

In the anterior approach to hip replacement, the incision is placed in front of the hip from the top of the pelvic bone to the top of the thigh. There is very minimal muscle cutting required in this approach, but that limits the surgeon’s visual access to the operative area, which can be challenging for less experienced surgeons.

How is the posterior approach for hip replacement procedure performed?

In the posterior approach to hip replacement, the surgeon makes a curved incision on the side and the back of the hip on the top of the femur. In this approach, the surgeon has to cut the tensor facia labiata, the large gluteus, and the external rotator muscles to gain better visual and operative access to the surgical site. These muscles are repaired and reattached without any future side effects. Get in touch with the best surgeons for hip replacement in Pune via Pristyn Care.

What is hip resurfacing?

Hip resurfacing is a variant of hip replacement procedures. It is performed to relieve pain in hip osteoarthritis patients. In contrast to total hip replacement, during this procedure, the surgeon trims the damaged bone and cartilage tissues in the joint and inserts the modified hip implant in their place.

How is hip replacement different from hip resurfacing?

During the hip replacement procedure, the surgeon removes the entire head of the thigh bone and inserts a metal stem hip prosthesis in its place, and then connects it to the thigh bone. It is then secured with the help of a ceramic or metal ball on the top.

Hip resurfacing, on the other hand, involves the minimal removal of the damaged tissues and their replacement with a modified implant. It is generally performed for hip osteoarthritis patients under the age of 60.

What are the patient criteria for a hip resurfacing procedure?

Since hip resurfacing procedures are minimally invasive and do not involve large-scale joint replacement, they are only performed when surgeons are certain that the patient will recover without any complications. Thus, they are preferred in patients with good immune and healing capacity. Hip resurfacing procedures are ideally performed for:

  • Young and active men with strong and healthy bones
  • Hip arthritis patients in their early 50s.
  • Patients with hip trauma
Which factors should be considered before choosing the best hip replacement doctor in Pune?

  • Patient’s expectations from the outcome of the surgery
  • The kind of implant the patient needs
  • Possible complications of the procedure and how the surgeon would manage them
How long does a hip joint replacement surgery take?

Usually, hip replacement surgery takes about one and a half hours. After the procedure, the patient has to be hospitalized for a day or two, depending on their health and their progress with physiotherapy.

Can hip replacement procedure be performed as an outpatient procedure?

Outpatient hip replacement, also called rapid-recovery hip replacement, ambulatory hip replacement, or same-day hip replacement, is a hip arthroplasty procedure in which the patient is free to go home on the same day. It is performed very rarely, and only in young patients with strong immune systems who can recover quickly on their own.

It is very beneficial as it reduces the risk of infection and promotes recovery as the patient can go home and recover in the comfort of their homes and return to their daily activities quicker. It is generally recommended for patients who do not smoke and do not have pre-existing medical conditions.

Is there a need for rehabilitation or physiotherapy after hip replacement?

Physiotherapy after hip replacement procedures helps the patients recover faster. It helps their bodies adjust to using the implant for maximum strength, function, and range of movement possible. It also minimizes the risks of post-surgical hip replacement complications such as infection, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or hip dislocation.

Can both hips be replaced simultaneously?

Yes. Patients under 75 years of age without a history of pre-existing medical conditions such as cardiopulmonary diseases can easily receive a hip replacement for both hips at the same time. However, it is best to stage the surgery to ensure better recovery in most cases.

How soon after the surgery can someone resume their daily activities?

Normally it takes 6-12 weeks for a patient to recover enough from hip replacement surgery and resume their daily lives. Most patients can start driving within 6 weeks of the surgery. However, it is best to avoid lifting the knee too high or crossing your legs in the beginning.

How long does hip prosthetic replacement last?

Generally, hip replacements can easily last for 15-20 years. According to some studies, hip replacements can easily last for over 25 years without too much degeneration in patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Pristyn Care’s orthopedic surgeons prefer the most advanced procedure of minimally invasive hip replacement over the conventional hip replacement surgery in which 1 or 2 small incisions of 3 – 4 inches are made. The aim of the minimally invasive hip replacement surgery using smaller incisions is to reduce post-operative pain and ensure a speedy recovery. Unlike conventional total hip replacement surgery, minimally invasive hip replacement surgery is suitable and highly beneficial for all patients.

Why might I need a total hip replacement?

  • Injury or fracture of the joint
  • Bone tumor in the joint
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Any such damage to the hip joint can be severely painful and might even interfere with the individual’s normal lifestyle and activities. Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery can help get relief from symptoms of the condition, recurring or constant pain, and improve the overall mobility and the overall quality of life. Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery is usually recommended to an individual if he or she still has significant problems and prevailing symptoms even after trying other non-surgical treatment options.

What are the advantages of minimally invasive hip replacement surgery?

Minimally invasive hip replacement surgery is the modern procedure preferred by most orthopedic surgeons due to its less invasive surgical approach. During a minimally invasive hip replacement surgery, the surgeon makes a smaller incision of 3 to 4 inches, which is nearly half as compared conventional hip replacement surgery.

Treatments for Degenerative Joint Disease in the Hip

Patients suffering from the degenerative joint disease are advised to undergo prompt treatment. There are a number of treatment options for the degenerative hip disease, ranging from nonsurgical to surgical treatment. The treatment option for each patient is chosen based on several individual factors, such as age, activity level, the extent of cartilage loss the joint has experienced, and the effect of the disease on the patient’s life.

Different treatments for degenerative disease in the hip joint you that may discuss with your orthopedic doctor include-

  • Medication- Medications can help reduce inflammation and swelling and can help manage the pain.
  • Physiotherapy- This can help strengthen the muscles around the affected joint and thus improve mobility and reduce pain. However, patients with severe pain or symptoms may require physiotherapy for several weeks or months.
  • Hip operation- If other treatments are not successful, the orthopedic surgeon may advise a hip joint replacement procedure. The surgeon will replace the injured hip joint with a metal or ceramic implant to restore function and quality of life.
