The Approach to Total Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is currently one of the most common orthopaedic procedures performed. It is a surgical procedure where the bones of the hip joint are replaced with a prosthetic implant. Hip replacement surgery can involve the entire joint (total replacement) or just a portion of the joint (semi or partial replacement). Prosthetic implants are made from metal, ceramic, and plastic pieces and are designed to imitate the original bones and joint.

Hip replacement surgery is typically performed to relieve arthritis pain but may also be used to treat hip fractures. The mains goals of the procedure are pain relief and improvement in hip function.
