What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

 

Hip replacement surgery is a procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. The procedure targets and removes damaged hip bone and cartilage in order to provide pain relief for patients. Oftentimes, patients who undergo hip replacement surgery see a noticeable improvement in their quality of life.

 

Here at Core Orthopedics and Sports Medicine, we know hip replacement surgery is a big decision. If you’re considering hip surgery, you shouldn’t feel alone. In fact, more than 340,000 total hip replacement surgeries are performed each year in the US. Even more comforting is the fact that the US Department of Health and Human Services considers total hip replacement to be one of the most successful and cost effective interventions in medicine. While you make your decision about hip replacement surgery, please do take into account the 90-95% success rate for 10 years post-surgery patients.

 

We do recommend that you not take the decision to undergo hip surgery lightly. It should be a decision you make after speaking with your physician, orthopedic surgeon, and your family. In addition to the mechanics and benefits of the actual procedure, you’ll also need to consider the commitment needed for pre- and post-operation care.

 

*Important Safety Note: Hip replacement surgery is intended to relieve hip pain and improve hip function. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original hip. There are potential risks with hip replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight. Do not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless your surgeon tells you the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if you do not follow your surgeon’s limitations on activity level. Early failure can happen if you do not guard your hip joint from overloading due to
activity level, failure to control body weight, or accidents such as falls. Talk to your doctor to determine what treatment may be best for you.
