Hip Osteoarthritis And Hip Replacement

Dr. Narayan Hulse explains all about hip osteoarthritis and hip replacement surgery in this article

  1. The most common type of arthritis affecting the hip is osteoarthritis, simple wear and tear on the joint over time, and it is most common in people over 60
  2. The joints that become affected, how badly they are affected, and when they become affected vary from person to person

> Unfortunately, once arthritis advances, it is extremely hard to control

In this article, Dr. Hulse speaks about the surgical management of hip osteoarthritis.

  1. Total hip replacement, is the removal of the damaged parts of the hip joint and socket and replacement with artificial implants made of metal, ceramic, or very hard plastic. This artificial joint (prosthesis) aids in the reduction of pain and improvement of function. This surgery may be an option if hip pain interferes with daily activities and other treatments are not effective.
  2. Partial hip replacement, also known as hemiarthroplasty, involves replacing only one side of the hip joint, the femoral head, rather than both sides, as in total hip replacement. This procedure is mostly performed on elderly patients for hip fractures.
