What Is Hip Replacement Surgery?
Hip replacement surgery is a procedure that is done for those who are suffering from extensive damage to their hip cartilage and bone. During the operation, portions of the hip joint are taken away and replaced with prosthetic parts. With a successful procedure, the hip’s mobility and function will be returned, as well as the alleviation of any discomfort.
Who is a Good Candidate for Hip Replacement Surgery?
Hip replacement surgery is most often carried out on individuals between the ages of 50 and 80, and can be done at any age if it is deemed medically essential. This type of operation is beneficial for individuals who experience hip discomfort that does not get better through taking medication, doing physical therapy, or exercising. People who suffer from arthritis had an injury, or have long-term issues with hip pain may also be suitable for the surgery. During your consultation with your surgeon, they will assist you in determining if surgery is the ideal choice.
