What is hip replacement surgery?
It is a medical procedure in whicha surgeon removes the damaged parts of hip joint and then they are replaced with artificial parts known as prosthesis.

What are the types of hip replacement surgeries?
Types –

  • Traditional Surgery.
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery.
  • The Artificial Joint.
  • Cemented and Uncemented Parts

Hip Replacement Surgery are of two types: traditional and minimally invasive.

Traditional Surgery:
An incision is made to expose the joint through some of the muscles around the hip The surgeon removes the damaged bone and replaces with prosthesis.

Minimally Invasive Surgery:
In this, the surgeon makes smaller incisions between the muscles. These incisions may be in the back, side, or front of the hip.

Minimally invasive surgery is done younger patients and those who are of normal weight and healthier than those who are candidates for traditional hip replacement surgery.

The artificial Joint:
It has two parts - a ball made of strong ceramic metal and the socket made of plastic,ceramic or metal.The ball attaches to the femur and the new socket attaches to the pelvis.

Cemented and Uncemented Parts:

  • There are two varieties - cemented and un-cemented
  • Cemented parts are being fastened to existing, healthy bone with a special cement. Over time, the patient’s own bone grows into the holes in the joint surface to secure them.
  • An un-cemented part for the socket and a cemented part for the femur and this combination is called hybrid placement.
  • Cemented joints are used for older,less active people and people with weak bones.
  • Un-cemented joints are often reserved for younger, more active people.It takes a longer recovery time because it takes time for bone to grow into the surface of the replacement parts.

What are hip implants?
These are medical devices meant for restoring mobility and relieve pain which is usually associated with arthritis and other hip diseases or injuries.
Types of total hip replacement devices:

  • Metal-On-Polyethylene: In this,the ball is made of metal and the socket is made of plastic.
  • Ceramic-On-Polyethylene: In this,the ball is made of ceramic while the socket is made of plastic.
  • Metal-On-Metal: The ball and socket are both made of metal.
  • Ceramic-On-Ceramic: The ball is made of ceramic and the socket has a ceramic lining.
  • Ceramic-On-Metal: The ball is made of ceramic and the socket is made of metal.

What is hip resurfacing?
It is used asa surgical alternative to total hip replacement (THR). A cobalt chrome metal cap is placed,over the head of the femur while a metal cup is placed in the acetabulum which replaces the articulating surfaces of the patient's hip joint. The movement of the joint induces synovial fluid flow between the hard metal bearing surfaces lubricating them when the components are placed in the correct position. Patient satisfaction is favorable after hip resurfacing arthroplasty.

How is it diagnosed?
The diagnosis required before the procedure is:

  • Blood Tests
  • Urine
  • EKG,
  • Chest X rays

What are recent advances in hip replacement surgery ?
The longevity and recovery time has been developed for total hip replacement.

Today, less invasive techniques, including the procedure known as a direct anterior total hip replacement, allow surgeons to replace the joint through one small incision made at the front of the thigh.

This approach provides a significantly shorter and faster recovery period. With this approach, the large gluteal muscles remain intact, which reduces the chances of dislocation.

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive procedure done with two or three tiny incisions.

Metal-on-metal implants in total hip replacement have been introduced with the goal of reducing wear particles and increasing the life of the total hip replacement. However,the newer designs are constructed with aluminumoxide ceramic, which promises lower incidence of breakage and wear.

The latest advanced technology, a percutaneously-assisted “SUPERPATH™” approach, involves sparing the surrounding muscles and tendons when performing total hip replacement surgery.This is done without the need to dislocate the hip during surgery.The SUPERPATH hip replacement is a technique which uses superior capsulotomy that allows for implantation of the total hip components .The advantages are:

  • Shorter recovery times
  • No activity limitations
  • Less pain
  • Decreased dislocation
  • Less scarring
  • More natural feeling hip
