What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

Hip replacement surgery (also known by hip arthroplasty or total hip replacement (THR)) is the process of replacing a diseased or damaged hip joint with an artificial hip joint. This is one of the most common orthopedic surgery treatment in case of severe arthritis damaged hip joint. About 200,000 of these surgeries are done in the United States every year.

How is Total Hip Replacement done?

The surgeon removes the damaged cartilage and bone and then positions the new artificial surfaces to restore the alignment and function of your hip. Special surgical cement may be used to fill the gap between the prosthesis and remaining natural bone to secure the artificial joint.

Anesthesia & Blood Transfusion

General anesthesia or epidural anesthesia can be given. Almost all hip replacement patients need blood transfusion.

Hospital Stay & Post-Hip Replacement Care

After the hip replacement about four to seven days of hospital stay is recommended by most doctors. In case of overseas hip replacement patients, it is recommended that the patient stay in the vicinity of the hospital for about seven to twelve days post hip surgery.

For the first few days avoid soaking the surgery wound in water until is has thoroughly sealed and dried. You should be able to resume most normal activities within three to six weeks following surgery. Minor pain with activity is common for several weeks. An exercise regimen & an iron rich balanced diet will help in speedy recovery to normal. Most people can drive on their own in 4 to 6 weeks after surgery.

After surgery of total hip replacement, precautions to take are:

  • Avoid falls & stairs in the first few days.
  • Do not cross your legs or bend them more than 90 degrees.
  • Use a pillow or some other soft cushion between your legs for the first few days.
