Hip / Knee Replacement

 

Total Hip Replacement

Hip Replacement, or arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the affected parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with new, artificial parts called Prosthesis. The ultimate goals of the procedure are:

  • Increasing mobility,
  • Restoring healthy function of the hip joint, and
  • Relieving the pain arising out of the damage to the bone.
  • Help lead regular life and do normal activities with some restrictions

This approach is prescribed by Orthopedics when all other treatment options have failed to provide adequate pain relief. Hip replacement surgery can be performed traditionally or by using a minimally-invasive technique. The difference between the two procedures is simply the size of the incision. The procedure should relieve a painful hip joint, making walking easier.

Hip Replacement at Desun hospital is currently one of the most successful and reliable orthopedic operations with the highest number of patients reporting improved outcome with no instances of infection. DESUN performs THR at an affordable cost.

When is total hip replacement surgery done ?

People eligible for this surgery have moderate to severe arthritis in the hip, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or post-traumatic arthritis, which causes pain and/or interferes with activities of daily living. The symptoms are:

  • Walking, going up stairs, and bending to get in and out of chairs is difficult.
  • Pain is moderate to severe even while resting, and may affect sleep.
  • Joint degeneration has caused stiffness that affects the hip’s range of motion during normal activities. The person may have a limp.
  • Symptoms are not adequately alleviated by non-surgical treatments, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, steroid injections, or the use of a cane or walker.

About 90% of people who undergo hip replacement have osteoarthritis. In addition to arthritis, some people have hip replacement surgery to correct problems related to broken bones or other medical conditions, such as osteonecrosis (bone death caused by inadequate blood supply).

It is advisable to consider hip replacement and consult a doctor if you have hip pain, that:

  • Persists, despite pain medication
  • Worsens with walking, even with a cane or walker
  • Interferes with your sleep
  • Makesit difficult to get dressed
  • Affects your ability to go up or down stairs
  • Makes it difficult to rise from a seated position
 

Which types of arthritis are cured with Total Hip Replacement?

The most common cause of chronic hip pain and disability is arthritis. Conditions that can damage the hip joint and make hip replacement surgery necessary include:

  • Osteoarthritis: Commonly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, osteoarthritis damages the slick cartilage that covers the ends of hip bones and ensures smooth mobility of joints.
  • 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 around the hip bones.
  • Traumatic arthritis: This is caused by injury and subsequent damage to the hip.
 

Why do people have Hip Replacement Surgery?

Most patients who undergo total hip replacement are age 50 to 80, but orthopedic surgeons evaluate patients individually. Total hip replacements have been performed successfully at all ages, from the young teenager with juvenile arthritis to the elderly patient with degenerative arthritis.

A specialist will evaluate the merits of each patient’s condition on evaluating the following factors:

  • A medical history: The orthopedic surgeon will gather information about the patient’s general health and ask the patient about the extent of their hip pain and the ability to function.
  • A physical examination: This will assess hip motion, stability, strength, and overall leg alignment.
  • X-rays: These help determine the extent of damage and deformity in the hip.
  • Other tests: Occasionally blood tests, or advanced imaging such as a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan, may be needed to determine the condition of the bone.

The hip replacement surgery helps in the following:

  • A relief in pain
  • Increased mobility
  • Improvement in daily activities
  • Improved quality of life
 

What can be expected immediately after Surgery?

  • For most people, hip replacement provides pain relief, improved mobility and a better quality of life and most hip replacements can be expected to last more than 15 years.
  • Three to six weeks after surgery, patients generally can resume most daily activities, such as shopping and light housekeeping.
  • After surgery, post operative care and rehabilitation shall be monitored by our skilled medical staff round the clock with attention and care.
  • Reduced the pain in the joints and increase the range of motion in your joint. Recovery will be steady with proper post operative care.
  • High-impact activities such as running or playing basketball might be too stressful on the artificial joint. But in time, the patient might resume activities like swim, play golf, hike or ride a bike comfortably. Usually, full recovery from the surgery takes about 3 months.

It is advisable to talk to the doctor about physical limitations based on the individual’s medical case history.
