Total Hip Replacement
Hip and groin pain, mobility issues, and muscle weakness are common symptoms of arthritis, orthopedic injuries, and overuse. Total hip replacement is the procedure where damaged parts of the hip are replaced with metal and plastic/ceramic parts. This is done to relieve pain and improve maneuverability, functionality, and strengthen the hip.

Total Hip Replacement Surgical Technique
The hip joint is a ball and socket joint. The acetabulum is the large “cup-shaped” portion of the pelvic bone. The head of the femur (thighbone) is the ball.
During a total hip replacement, worn-out ends of arthritic bones are removed and replaced with the hip implant. There are multiple ways to perform a hip replacement, but the two most popular are the anterior approach and the posterior approach.
