Hip replacement (total)

Hip replacement (total)

Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which an artificial prosthesis is incorporated in place of a damaged hip joint. In this procedure an incision is made at the joint and the damaged joint is removed by the surgeon. The damaged joint is then replaced by an artificial joint made of ceramic or a metal alloy. Indications are hip bone fracture, osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Complete recovery takes place within 2 to 6 months.
