What is Hip Replacement Surgery?
Hip replacement surgery is medically known as hip arthroplasty. It is done to alleviate symptoms of hip conditions such as severe pain. In this surgery, damaged parts of the hip joint are replaced by implants.
A hip replacement surgery is either done in a traditional manner in which the surgical incision is large, or in a minimally-invasive manner where there are smaller incisions. The latter is a better technique as its recovery rate is faster.
About The Hip
The hip joint is the only joint in the human body bearing the maximum amount of weight. It is commonly known as the ball (femoral head) and the socket (acetabulum) joint. The hip joint comprises muscles, tendons and ligaments.
The femoral head that is attached to the femur, connects the hip to the thigh bones. The acetabulum or the socket holds the femoral head and connects it to the pelvis. Together, this ball-and-socket joint allows for extensive motion.
