Hip replacement which is also known as hip arthroplasty is an innovative procedure to deal with most complicated hip problems. It is a surgical intervention carried out by a hip replacement surgeon, where the arthritic hip joints or worn-out joints or damaged hip joints are replaced with an artificial hip joint called prosthetics. These prosthetics are often made of metal or plastic components. Usually, hip replacements are done by hip surgeons when conventional treatment options fail to provide pain relief and improve the condition.
Hip replacements surgeries are of different types such as Partial Hip Replacement Surgery, Total Hip Replacement Surgery, Complex Hip Replacement Surgery, Revision Hip Replacement Surgery. Hip replacement surgeries have become one of the most successful procedures.
People who suffer from intense hip pain, struggling to perform daily activities such as walking, sitting, pain even while resting and limiting the range of motion or loss of function. Usually, hip replacement surgery is commonly performed in adults because they are more vulnerable to joint problems, but in younger people, it is performed when the hip gets fractured, etc.
