How is Hip Replacement Surgery Performed?

Total hip replacement surgery is performed by placing implants in the socket (acetabulum) and femoral head damaged by osteoarthritis in the hip joint. The deteriorated and damaged femoral head is cut off and replaced with an implant made of metal alloy in the femoral canal and a ball-shaped head made of ceramic, cobalt chrome or oxinium. In partial hip replacement  only the femoral head of the hip joint is replaced, the socket part is not intervened.


Recovery After Hip Replacement Surgery

Most patients who have hip replacement surgery start walking with a walker the day after the surgery. The orthopedic surgeon determines when you can safely return to normal activities. Generally, this period can vary from 4 weeks to 4 months.

More than 90% of people who have hip replacement surgery due to hip joint osteoarthritis live the rest of their lives painlessly and comfortably. For a higher success rate, it is important that the hip replacement surgery is performed by a specialist orthopedic surgeon.
