 What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

 

Hip replacement surgery, also known as hip arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure performed to replace a damaged or diseased hip joint with an artificial joint, called a prosthesis. This surgery is typically recommended for individuals who have severe hip pain and reduced mobility due to conditions such as osteoarthritis,rheumatoid arthritis, avascular necrosis (loss of blood supply to the hip joint), hip fractures, or other conditions that cause damage to the hip joint.

Hip replacement surgery may be considered as a treatment option for patients experiencing symptoms such as:

Chronic Hip Pain:Persistent and debilitating pain in the hip joint that does not respond adequately to conservative treatments such as medication, physical therapy, orinjections.

Limited Mobility:Difficulty walking, climbing stairs, or performing daily activities due to pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion in the hip joint.
