Treatment

Diagnosis

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

What-Dr. Ashish Taneja-Say-About-Hip Replacement-Treatment

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. "

There is no single specific cause of osteoarthritis, but there are certain factors that increase the risk of developing the disease, such as-

  • Obesity
  • Aging
  • Family history of osteoarthritis
  • Previous injury to the hip joint
  • Developmental dysplasia of the hip joint (a condition in which there is improper formation of the hip joint at birth)

People with no above mentioned conditions or risk factors can still develop osteoarthritis.

What are the symptoms of hip osteoarthritis?

Common symptoms of osteoarthritis of the hip joint are-

  • Hip joint stiffness while getting out of bed or getting up after sitting for a long time
  • Hip pain, swelling, and tenderness
  • A sound or feeling (like crunching) of the bone rubbing against another bone (of the hip joint)
  • Inability to move the hip to perform daily activities such as putting on socks, getting out of a chair, etc.
What is hip resurfacing?

Hip resurfacing is a surgical procedure that can provide short-term relief while delaying a hip replacement. In a hip resurfacing surgery, the diseased surfaces of the hip joint are removed surgically and replaced with smooth metal covering. The entire femur bone is preserved in this procedure, which makes a future hip replacement surgery possible.

What is hip hemiarthroplasty?

Hip hemiarthroplasty is the surgical procedure that replaces half of the hip joint. This procedure has proven to be an effective treatment for various types of femoral neck fractures for over 50 years. It is associated with low incidence rates of dislocation and infection.

How long is the hospitalization after arthroscopic hip replacement surgery?

Patients are typically discharged from the hospital 2 to 3 days after minimally invasive hip bone replacement.

How long is the incision for hip replacement surgery?

Conventional hip replacement open surgery uses a large incision of 10 -12 inches while arthroscopic hip replacement surgery needs a small incision of 4 – 6 inch.

When can I return to work after a hip bone replacement?

If your job involves a regular office setting, you might be able to return to work within 2 to 3 weeks after your hip replacement. However, if your job requires strenuous work, bending over, walking, a lot of exertion, use of heavy machinery or heavy manual labour, you will be advised to take a longer time off work.

When do I start rehabilitation after the hip replacement?

Rehabilitation typically begins the same day or next day after the surgery.

What is the success rate after hip replacement?

Hip bone replacement has a 90% success rate in terms of stability of the joint, pain-relief, patient’s satisfaction, mobility and return to maximum activity.

What is a robotic assisted hip replacement?

Robotic hip replacement is the surgery where the orthopedic surgeon uses a robot during the hip bone replacement. The procedure is the same as a normal hip replacement surgery and involves using a CT scan (typically taken prior to the surgery) to produce a 3D (three-dimensional) model of the affected hip joint. The 3D model is then used to digitally plan the surgery, based on the individual anatomy and condition of the patient, enhancing surgery precision.

What are the benefits of robotic-assisted hip replacement surgery?

Benefits of robotic hip replacement include-

  • Patient specific anatomic/functional customization
  • Higher accuracy rates in preparation of hip bone surfaces
  • Lower risk of postoperative complications
  • Reduced trauma or injury to adjacent healthy tissues
  • Faster recovery and rehabilitation
  • More optimal outcomes
When to call your hip surgeon after hip replacement?

You should call your surgeon right away if you notice symptoms of infections or complications after your hip replacement. Call your doctor right away if you notice-

  • Bad smelly discharge or drainage from the incision
  • Chills or shaking
  • Fever higher than 100.4 degrees
  • Hip pain, that gets worse
  • Pain, swelling, tenderness or redness in the calf (which could be blood clots)
  • Swelling or redness around the incision
What is the use of walkers for hip surgery?

After a hip replacement, the patient is advised to not put full weight on his knees and hips to ensure proper recovery. Risk of an injury or dislocation is also higher as the new hip might not be prepared to take the full weight of the body. A walker can be used by patients after hip replacement to help provide stability to the new hip while moving while keeping it within the weight-bearing restrictions.

Which method of hip replacement is the best?

Hip replacement surgery can be performed using conventional technique (requiring a 10 to 12 inch incision) and minimally invasive technique ( requiring incision of 4 – 6 inch). As the minimally invasive hip replacement requires a much shorter incision, there is a lot less trauma or damage to the surrounding muscle and tissue, which promotes early recovery. Risk of infection and postoperative complications is also lesser in case of minimally invasive hip replacement. Most orthopedic surgeons prefer to use the minimally invasive approach because of its high success rate and benefits.

What is the most commonly performed hip operation?

Total hip replacement or hip arthroplasty is the most common hip operation performed. Over 70,000 hip procedures take place every year in India.

What is the most common complication after hip replacement?

Loosening or dislocation of the hip joint and difference in length of the leg are the most common complications after hip replacement.

Is a bloated stomach after hip replacement surgery normal?

During the hip operation, the patient is given IV (intravenous) fluids to replenish the body’s fluids and balance the sodium levels. The IV fluids can result in some bloating while the body regulates its fluid levels after the surgery. Although it can be uncomfortable, rest assured that a bloated stomach after hip replacement is a normal part of the recovery process and will subside on its own over time. If the problem still persists after a few days, you should speak to your surgeon.

Get rid of the pain and return to your normal lifestyle with Total hip Replacement Surgery

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. Consult the best orthopedic surgeons to undergo minimally invasive total hip replacement surgery.

Why might I need a total hip replacement?

A patient has typically suggested a hip replacement surgery if he or she has had significant damage to the hip joint. Several health conditions can damage the hip joint, including-

  • 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. Benefits of undergoing minimally invasive include-

  • Smaller scar
  • Less damage to the nearby soft tissue
  • A faster rehabilitation
  • Lesser postoperative pain or discomfort

  • Shorter Hospital Stay

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.
