Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the hip joint is replaced by a prosthetic implant. Hip replacement surgery can be performed as a total replacement or a hemi (half) replacement. Such hip joint replacement orthopedic surgery in india is generally conducted to relieve arthritic pain or fix severe physical joint damage as part of hip fracture treatment or Avascular Necrosis.
A total hip replacement (total hip arthroplasty) consists of replacing both the acetabulum and the femoral head while hemiarthroplasty generally only replaces the femoral head.
