Hip Replacement Surgery
Hip replacement surgery is a medical procedure in which the surgeon replaces a painful hip joint with an artificial joint made of metal and plastic components.
Hip joint replacement surgery is usually performed when all other treatment options have failed to relieve the patient of the pain experienced. At Yashoda Hospitals Hyderabad, we have one of the best multidisciplinary teams who have years of experience in treating patients with hip-related issues and giving them the best combination of treatments depending on their condition making us one of the top hospitals in India.
Why is it performed?
It is performed when the hip joint is worn out or damaged to increase mobility and decrease the pain. These surgeries are mostly performed on patients suffering from osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis patients.
We at Yashoda Hospital Hyderabad give the best care and treatment to our patients with the help of our team of top hip surgeons and doctors in India giving the best results to our patients.
Types of Hip Replacement Surgeries
The various type of treatment strategies are:
- Posterior approach: It is a process in which the surgeon creates a 4-6 inch hole along the outer buttock to split and detach the gluteus maximus muscle, and reattaches the piriformis muscle and the superior gemellus muscle.
- Anterior approach: It is when the surgeon makes an incision on the front part of the upper thigh, and doesn’t need to cut through the muscle in most cases.
- Hip Preservation Surgery/Hip Arthroscopy: It is performed when the hip joint damage is not severe enough to warrant a hip replacement.
- Total Hip Replacement Surgery: It is a procedure in which the damaged femoral head is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.
Our team consists of orthopedic hip surgeons, trauma surgeons, physical medicine experts, physiotherapists, and bone specialist doctors, nurses, dietitians. We provide the best treatments for people suffering from hip pain due to conditions like a bad fall, trauma, osteoarthritis, and rheumatoid arthritis. We have become one of the top hospitals in India by providing desirable results to our patients in this field.
Risks & complications
Since it is a surgical procedure there are some risk and complications associated with hip replacement surgery which include:
- Blood clots
- Change in leg length
- Nerve damage
Most patients with hip surgery can walk the same day or next day of surgery but a complete recovery takes around 3 to 6 weeks.
