What is Hip Replacement?
Total hip replacement is a major surgery to replace the damaged components of the hip joint with artificial implants or prosthetics. With the use of specialized instruments, the damaged portion is shaved (resurfaced) and replaced with implants. The artificial hip thus implanted offers a near normal function of the new joint. The implant stays functional for up to 15 years for all age groups and indications.
