Hip Replacement

Hip replacement surgery involves the damaged bone surfaces and cartilage being removed and replaced with implants. The aim of the procedure is to restore mobility, and mitigate painful bone-on-bone contact.

Full Hip Replacement

A full hip replacement’s goal is to replicate the action of your natural joint through it’s four parts: a socket (cup), liner, ball (head) and stem. The cup is normally made of metal and fits into the hip socket. The liner is typically made of a medical grade plastic, called polyethylene. The head forms the ball of the hip and fits in the liner to form the joint. Then, the stem, which is normally made of metal, fits into the femur (thighbone).

Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement

Surgeons can save key muscles and tissues from tearing in minimally invasive surgery, that are normally torn during traditional surgery. The same implants will be used during minimally invasive surgery as traditional hip replacement, and it allows for smaller incisions, shorter hospital stays and a speedier recovery. Talk with your doctor to determine whether this procedure is the best option for you, as not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive hip replacement.

How Do You Know If You Are A Candidate For Hip Replacement?

You and your doctor should determine whether you need hip surgery together. If you start to find that non-surgical treatments aren’t providing as much pain relief as you need to enjoy life the way you used to, it might be the right time to consider whether hip replacement surgery is the best option.

Some common signs that you should observe when considering hip replacement surgery are:

  • Pain that wakes you up or keeps you awake at night
  • Pain that inhibits your daily routine such as walking or bending
  • Your hip feels stiff and painful to an extent that it limits your mobility and daily life.
  • Other treatments that you have tried are not relieving your persistent pain

Other factors that you should consider with your doctor before considering surgery are age, overall health and bone density. All surgical procedures have risks and benefits, and individual results vary based on personal circumstances. Recovery will take time, and your doctor will be able to provide details around post-operative expectations.

Although some doctors might try to delay total hip replacement for as long as possible and recommend treatments that are less invasive, if you have a condition such as joint disease, hip replacement may provide relief from pain and return to normal activities faster.

If you’re in a situation where you are finding you aren’t enjoying life to the fullest due to your hip pain, we would recommend consulting an orthopedic surgeon to understand if joint replacement should be in your consideration set.
