    Hip Replacement Surgery

    Treatment Description

    What is Hip Replacement surgery?

    Hip Replacement surgery, also known as Arthroplasty surgery, is a surgical procedure that involves the excision of the affected segment of the body like a joint and implantation an artificial element that takes the function of the damaged structure.

    The surgery is used to treat osteoarthritis and multiple trauma. It involves the replacement of a natural hip joint with an artificial pond – prosthesis. After surgery the joint pain is eliminated, and the lost function is restored,  allowing you to perform basic movements such as walking, lifting weights, etc.

    .

    .

    Methods of the surgery (depending on the way in which the implant is attached):

    – complete surgery which is replacing with the artificial elements both the acetabulum and femoral head of the bone,

    – partial surgery where only the head of the femur is replaced with a prosthesis

    – cementing when the elements/implants are fixed with bone glue, so called cement

    – without cementing – acetabulum and the head of the joint consists of a metal and a polyethyl insert with porous surface

    – hybrid

    – tied

    – untied

    For who is the surgery?

    Changes in the hip usually occur in patients of middle or old age. Symptoms can range from mild discomfort to severe joint pain and immobility. The doctor will collect medical information, measure the range of motion of the hip joints and muscle strength, check how you  sit, bend and move and x-rays are taken. The goal is to determine the severity of hip damage. If x-rays show severe damage to the joint, and none of the treatments so far brought relief, an orthopedic surgeon will  suggest a hip replacement surgery.

    Complications after surgery:

    The complications can be divided into:

    Early complications:

    – Venous thromboembolism

    – Pulmonary embolism

    – Joint infection

    – Excessive bleeding

    – Peroneal nerve palsy

    Late complications:

    – Loosening of the implant

    – Wear pads polyethyl

    – Fracture or femoral fracture

    – Pain

    How well does the surgery work?

    People who have had hip replacement surgery experience much less pain than before surgery and are usually able to resume normal daily activities.

    • It  will be easier for you to climb stairs, get in and out of a car, walk without tiring, walk without a limp or with less of a limp, as well as take care of your feet hygiene
    • You probably will be able to resume sport activities that you did before surgery
    • though you may resume sport activities remember not to exaggerate as your doctor surely will discourage you from running, playing tennis, and doing other sports that put a lot of stress on the joint.

    Depending on how well you take care of yourself and your new hip your artificial hip joints will last for 10 to 20 years or longer without loosening.

    It’s worth noting that the younger you are when you have the surgery and the more stress you put on the joint, the more likely it is that you will eventually need a second surgery to replace the first artificial joint because over time, the components wear down or may loosen and need to be replaced.

    After Treatment

    After surgery the wound is protected by a dressing. You must be careful not to wet the wound, so bathing in the tub is prohibited. Of course you may wash and take a shower, but before you must protect your wound with a dressing, like a plastic one. Most probably, the first few days, or even weeks you won’t be able to manage alone – crutches will come at help.

    After hip replacement surgery, you need to remember a few things:  not only to be careful but to never stand on the operated leg, or that you are allowed to sit only in high chairs.
