Hip Replacement Surgery



Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which a doctor surgically removes a painful hip joint with arthritis and replaces it with an artificial joint often made from metal and plastic components. It usually is done when all other treatment options have failed to provide adequate pain relief. The procedure should relieve a painful hip joint, making walking easier. Adults of any age can be considered for a hip replacement, although most are carried out on people between the ages of 60 and 80. Hip replacement surgery can be performed as a total replacement or a hemi replacement.

When a hip replacement is needed

Hip replacement surgery is usually necessary when the hip joint is worn or damaged to the extent that your mobility is reduced and you experience pain even while resting.

The most common reason for hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis. Other conditions that can cause hip joint damage include:

  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • A Hip Fracture
  • Septic Arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Disorders that cause unusual bone growth (bone dysplasias)

A hip replacement is major surgery, so is normally only recommended if other treatments, such as physiotherapy or steroid injections, haven't helped reduce pain or improve mobility.

You may be offered hip replacement surgery if:

  • You have severe pain, swelling and stiffness in your hip joint and your mobility is reduced
  • Your hip pain is so severe that it interferes with your quality of life and sleep everyday tasks, such as shopping or getting out of the bath, are difficult or impossible
  • You're feeling depressed because of the pain and lack of mobility
  • You can't work or have a normal social life
  • You'll also need to be well enough to cope with both a major operation and the rehabilitation afterwards.


  • Painless
  • No Bleeding
  • Improvement in gait
  • Correction of Limb lengthening discrepancy

Anything from improper lifting to ageing may cause back pain. Some of the common causes include:

  • Stretched or strained muscles
  • Injuries that damage the muscles, bones or tissue in the back
  • Herniated (slipped) disks
  • Osteoporosis
  • Obesity or excess weight
  • Poor posture
  • Pregnancy

Back pain is common among adults, but if your pain is severe or becomes more frequent, you should talk to your doctor. If you’re having even mild back pain, you should consult a doctor if you experience:

  • Numbness or tingling
  • Severe pain that does not improve with rest
  • Pain after a fall or an injury
  • Pain plus any of these problems:
  • Trouble urinating
  • Weakness
  • Numbness in the legs
  • Fever
  • Weight loss when not on a diet

You will probably use a walker for 1 to 3 weeks and then use crutches. When you are ready, you can use a cane. You will probably be able to walk on your own in 4 to 8 weeks. You will need to do months of physical rehabilitation (rehab) after a knee replacement.

You may feel uncomfortable at first, but these exercises will help speed your recovery and actually diminish your postoperative pain.

  • Straight Leg Raises
  • Ankle Pumps
  • Knee Straightening Exercises
  • Bed-Supported Knee Bends
  • Sitting Supported Knee Bends
  • Mild soreness to severe pain
  • Fever, chills, and muscle ache, indicating the presence of infection
  • Mobility issues, including reduced range of motion and knee stiffness
  • Swelling resulting from the inflammation of the lining of the knee
  • Effusion, or excess fluid in the knee

The most common reason that people have hip replacement surgery is the wearing down of the hip joint that results from osteoarthritis. Other conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis (a chronic inflammatory disease that causes joint pain, stiffness, and swelling), avascular necrosis (loss of bone caused by insufficient blood supply), injury, and bone tumors also may lead to the breakdown of the hip joint and the need for hip replacement surgery.

Total hip replacement surgery involves replacing the hip joint with an artificial joint made of metal, plastic or ceramic materials. The doctor makes a six- to ten-inch incision on the side or back of your hip. Materials used in making your artificial joints are strong and designed to last a long time inside your body.
