Total Hip Replacement Surgery Overview

Total Hip Replacement Surgery::

Total Hip Replacement Surgery: If you are considering  Hip Surgery  the following total hip replacement information might help you understand the procedure and implants better. Your hips work hard during your daily routine, and arthritis of the hip or a hip injury can make it hard for you to perform normal tasks. If your injury or arthritis is severe, you may begin experience pain when you’re sitting down or trying to sleep.

Total Hip Replacement Surgery::

Total Hip Replacement Surgery: Sometimes a  Total Hip Replacement  is the only option for reducing pain and restoring a normal activity level . If you and your doctor decide a total hip replacement is right for you, the following information will give you an understanding about what to expect. A total hip replacement involves cutting away the damaged bone of the hip joint and replacing it with a prosthesis. This "new joint" prevents the bones from rubbing together and provides a smooth hip joint.

Implant Components::

Implant Components: In the total hip replacement procedure , each prosthesis is made up of two major parts. The femoral component is a metal shaft with a ball on the end and replaces the top of the femur. The acetabular component replaces the socket side of the joint and is made of a metal cup and plastic liner.

The Procedure::

The Procedure: Before you are taken to the operating room you'll be given medication to help you relax, and the anesthesiologist will talk with you about the medications he'll be using. In the operating room, you will be placed under full anesthesia . Once you are "under" the surgeon will begin by making an incision in your leg to allow access to the hip joint. He’ll then expose the joint and place a cutting jig or template on the end of the femur, or thigh bone. This jig allows the surgeon to cut the bone precisely so that the prosthesis fits exactly. Once the femur is cut, the inside of the bone will be prepared so that it closely matches the shape of the femoral shaft your surgeon has selected. Then the cup portion of the pelvis is prepared with cutting tools so that the metal cup will fit exactly.

The Procedure::

The Procedure: To supplement this joining, supportive screws or pegs are often used. Bone is a living and growing tissue. If an implant coated with metallic beads to form a porous under surface is placed in very close contact to living bone, tissues can grow into the pores, further locking the implant in place. Porous-coated hip prostheses have been used for many years and have shown excellent results in many patients . Finally, the incision is closed, a drain is put in, and the post-operative bandaging is applied.
