What is Total Hip Replacement

Hip Joint Replacement is surgery to replace all or part of the hip joint with a man-made joint. The artificial joint is called a Prosthesis.

In a total Hip Replacement, also called Total Hip Arthroplasty, both the thigh bone (Femur) and the socket are replaced with implant prostheses. Specifically, a metal stem is inserted into your thighbone. Attached to the neck of the stem is a hip ball, just over an inch in diameter. The Hip Ball fits into a liner. Together, the ball and liner create the new joint. The liner is inserted into a metal shell that in turn is anchored to your pelvis.
