Total hip replacement is surgery to remove the damaged joint surfaces and replace them with prosthetic implants. The surgeon removes the arthritic ball on the end of the thigh bone and hollows out the hip socket. The specialist will then replace them with high-tech prostheses that can glide smoothly over each other. 

There are many prosthetic devices and procedures available. Your consultant surgeon will make a detailed assessment of your hip and recommend the replacement that best suits your hip and your lifestyle. Options include:

  • Uncemented total hip replacement
  • Cemented total hip replacement
  • Hip revision, for people who have had previous hip replacement surgery
  • Partial Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip Replacement Operation

Sapna Healthcare Centre offers hip replacement surgery under general anaesthetic or using spinal anaesthesia, so that you are awake but your legs and hips are numb. Your surgeon will discuss the options with you, always considering your preferences and your general health.

The surgeon will make an incision in the skin over your hip. The length of the incision will vary, depending on the local anatomy.

Your consultant will carefully cut away the ball from the thigh bone. They will then attach a metal implant into the hollowed out stem of the femur. A new prosthetic ball made of ceramic or metal is attached, to replace the diseased femoral head. 

The specialist will then remove the damaged cartilage from the hip socket and precisely insert a metal prosthetic component. Then a specially-designed spacer device is placed between the ball and socket to allow the surfaces to glide easily over each other.

The surgeon will then suture the muscle and skin closed, in layers.
