Due to injury or age, the hip joint encounters damage that makes movement very uneasy and painful. This has great impact on the productivity of the person. To eliminate this pain, hip replacement surgery is performed, where the hip joint is replaced with an artificial prosthetic implant.
There are two types of hip surgery: (a) Total Hip Replacement and (b) Partial Hip Replacement surgery. The type of damage the patient has sustained determines the type of surgery that needs to be performed. While in partial hip replacement surgery, only the femoral head (ball) of the hip joint is replaced, a total hip replacement involves the replacement of both the ball and socket of the hip joint.
At Care Hospitals, one of the finest hip replacement surgery hospitals in India, the doctors carefully diagnose the issue and perform the type of surgery required to eliminate the pain completely.
