Hip Replacement hip replacement is the tested and proved operation for hip arthritis in elderly patients over 70 years of age. A total hip replacement is also the preferred treatment for femoral neck fracture in this age group. THR is advised as the golden standard for hip arthritis in patients older than 65 years, advanced hip destruction, altered anatomy in the upper femur. We offer primary conventional total hip replacement, short stem Proxima hip or METHA hip as the implant of choice for hip replacement where bone stock is preserved. Revision hip surgery with standard and advanced reconstruction prostheses is done for patients who have developed infection, loosening, bone loss and failed primary THR. Revision to a THR after a failed hip resurfacing is comparatively easy. Alternatives to Hip Replacement Treatment of hip arthritis should begin with the most basic options and progress to the more involved, which may include surgery. Not all treatments are appropriate for every patient.

Hip replacement is generally reserved for patients who have tried all of the other treatments and are still left with significant pain during normal activities. Patients who have occasional pain, are able to participate in athletic activities, or have not tried non-operative treatments are probably not ready for a hip replacement Hip Replacement Implants Hip replacement surgery removes the damaged joint lining and replaces the joint surfaces with an artificial implant that functions similar to a normal hip. These implants will wear out over time, and hip replacements are done infrequently in younger patients because of the concern of the implant wearing out too quickly. Hip replacement implants have been modified in order to provide the best possible functioning with long-lasting results. This effort to perfect hip replacement implants is constantly taking place. Some newer implants have promise, others may not turn out to be better.

Procedure * During a hip replacement surgery a 6-8 inch incision is made over the side of the hip through the muscle and the damaged bone tissue and cartilage are removed. The head of the femur and acetabulum are replaced with new artificial parts. * Now-a-days surgeons perform minimally invasive hip replacement. * Two kinds of artificial parts are available. They are cemented parts and non-cemented parts. During a total hip replacement procedure a metal stem is inserted into your thighbone (femur). Attached to the neck of the stem is a hip ball, just over an inch in diameter. The hip ball fits into a liner. Together, the ball and liner create the new joint. The liner is inserted into a metal shell that in turn is anchored to your pelvis. In terms of fixation, your surgeon has the choice of anchoring the hip implants securely to bone using either cement fixation or fixation by 'bone ingrowth'. Your surgeon will select the design of the hip replacement and size of femoral ball to give you the range of motion and stability that you need to function.
