Hip replacement, also known as total hip arthroplasty (THA), is a surgical procedure designed to alleviate pain and restore function in a damaged or diseased hip joint. It is a common and highly successful intervention for individuals suffering from conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, hip fractures, or avascular necrosis.

Indications for Hip Replacement:

Osteoarthritis of the Hip:

Degeneration of the hip joint cartilage and underlying bone.

Gradual onset of pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion.

Rheumatoid Arthritis:

An autoimmune disorder causing inflammation and joint damage.

Affects the synovial lining of the hip joint.

Hip Fractures:

Breaks in the femoral neck or the hip joint socket.

Common in elderly individuals due to falls or trauma.

Avascular Necrosis:

Poor blood supply leads to the death of hip bone tissue.

Can result in collapse and degeneration of the hip joint.

Types of Hip Replacement:

Total Hip Replacement (THR):

The most common type.

Involves replacing both the femoral head and the acetabulum (hip socket) with prosthetic components.

Hip Resurfacing:

Preserves more of the natural bone.

A metal cap was placed on the femoral head, and a metal cup was in the acetabulum.
