Total hip replacement is a major surgery to replace the damaged components of the hip joint with artificial implants or prosthetics. With the use of specialized instruments, the damaged portion is shaved (resurfaced) and replaced with implants. The artificial hip thus implanted offers a near normal function of the new joint. The implant stays functional for up to 15 years for all age groups and indications.
Hip replacement surgeries are relatively safe and show good success rate. The success rate of hip replacements 10 years after surgery is 90- 95% and at 20 years 80-85%. The availability of advanced technologies, custom-designed implants and well established surgical expertise at institutions like Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, India, more and more people are finding better outcomes and improved quality of life after surgery.
