Why is it done?

Some conditions that can damage the hip joint thus necessitating hip replacement surgery include:

  • Osteoarthritis: Commonly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, osteoarthritis damages the slick cartilage that covers the ends of bones and helps joints move smoothly.

  • Rheumatoid arthritis: Caused by an overactive immune system, rheumatoid arthritis produces a type of inflammation that can erode cartilage and occasionally underlying bone, resulting in damaged and deformed joints.

  • Osteonecrosis: If there is an inadequate blood supply to the ball portion of the hip joint, the bone may collapse and deform.

Indications
 

A person requires Hip Replacement Surgery under the following conditions:-

  • Constant pain in the hip area

  • Pain interferes with sleep

  • There is difficulty while walking

  • It gets difficult to move in or out of a chair

Diagnosis for Hip Replacement
 

Before surgery, the orthopedic surgeon shall examine the following:

  • Ask about the patient’s medical history and current medications.

  • Do a brief general physical examination to make sure that the patient is healthy enough to undergo surgery.

  • Examine the hip, paying attention to the range of motions in a joint and the strength of the surrounding muscles.

  • Order blood tests, an X-ray and maybe an MRI.

Procedure 
 

  • The procedure takes around one to one-and-a-half hour to complete and is performed under general anesthesia.

  • An incision is made over the front or side of the hip through the layers of tissue and the muscles are moved to connect them to the top of the thighbone, exposing the hip joint. 

  • The diseased and damaged bone and cartilage are removed, leaving healthy bone intact. 

  • The prosthetic socket is implanted into the pelvic bone, to replace the damaged socket.

  • The new ball part of the thighbone is then inserted into the socket part of the hip. A drain may be put in to help drain any fluid. The doctor then reattaches the muscles and closes the incision.

After Procedure
 

  • The patient will have to stay in the hospital for 6–8 days.

  • The Patient will have to stay in bed with a wedge-shaped cushion between the legs to keep the new hip joint in place

  • After the surgery, the patient is at increased risk of blood clots in the legs. Possible measures to prevent this complication include:

    • Early mobilization: The patient would be encouraged to sit up and even try walking with crutches or a walker soon after surgery. This may happen the same day as of surgery or on the following day.
       
    • Pressure application: Both during and after surgery, the patient may wear elastic compression stockings or inflatable air sleeves similar to a blood pressure cuff on lower legs. The pressure exerted by the inflated sleeves helps keep blood from pooling in the leg veins, reducing chances of clot formation.
       
    • Blood-thinning medication:  Oral blood thinner or injection may be prescribed after surgery. Depending on recovery and overall risk of blood clots, the blood thinners may be needed for several weeks after surgery.
       
  • Complete recovery can take 6-12 months.
