Hip Joint Replacement
Hip Joint Replacement Surgery
Hip joint replacement surgery can be the result of a illness that has cultivated with time, like bursitis and arthritis, or of a current hip damage, like a hip fracture or hip displacement.
Hip bursitis and arthritis, for example, can cause severe bone and joint discomfort if they go unnoticed, making treatment a viable option for relieving your hip pain.
There are a number of conditions that can cause hip pain, and your doctor may recommend that you undergo hip joint replacement surgery. hip joint replacement surgery.
Signs and symptoms of hip pain contain:
- Joint pain experienced in the front of the hip, with the outside of the hip, in the groin, or over the buttock area
- Uneasiness and inflammation in the thigh and knee
- Joint discomfort or hip muscle spasms, which may reason fluid accretion in the hip joint
- Limping or the incapability to walk easily on the damaged side
- Incapability to turn or rotate the hip
- Pain and the feeling of the hip throbbing while sleeping or resting
- Fever, redness, and warmth also the signs of infection
In the circumstance that you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above, you may have a hip disorder or injury, such as a fractured hip or a dislocated hip flexor or labral tear. It’s possible to get rid of this by having a joint replacement procedure.
There are two types of this surgery :

Computer-Assisted Hip Joint Replacement
Using a computer assisted hip joint replacement surgery, our expert surgeons are able to exchange injured joints or joint levels with artificial joints and elements as exactly as possible with the modern computer technology in robot-assisted surgery.
With the help of computer-assisted surgery, our skilled surgical team can provide patients with a new joint that is painless and flexible. Our medical system makes use of CT (computerised tomography) scans to customise operative guidance based on the unique anatomy of each patient. For the purpose of performing a minimally invasive joint replacement surgery, this data makes use of a three-dimensional patient hip or knee model.
Robotic-arm assisted knee and hip joint replacement surgery uses implantations designed for everyday, general movement. A minimal amount of pain is experienced following surgery, which results in a short hospital stay with quick recovery. The anatomy of your body dictates the need for a customised clinical strategy for implantation and soft-tissue adaptation, which reduces the likelihood of complications.
Who Needs Hip Joint Replacement Surgery With Computer Technology?
People with severe fractures of the femur or other bones that make a joint are eligible for hip joint replacement surgery if they have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis, post-traumatic arthritis, or osteoarthritis.
Patients who meet specific criteria for a minimally invasive robotic joint replacement procedure can receive effective pain relief from this procedure. People with advanced osteoarthritis of the knee, for example, may benefit from partial knee replacement surgery. Regardless of whether you are a candidate for one of these procedures, you should seek the advice of an expert orthopaedic surgeon.
What to Expect Before Your Hip Joint Replacement Surgery ?
Before surgery, you’ll have an X-ray taken to determine the source of your joint pain. Your doctor may then order an MRI scan to further narrow down the problem.
Steroid injections, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medicines, pain medicines or bracing may be recommended by your doctor before recommending knee or hip joint replacement surgery.
You will undergo a CT scan as part of the Mako procedure in order to create your customised surgical plan.
What to Expect During Your Surgery ?
Partial knee, total knee, and total hip joint replacement surgery with a computer system is like a traditional joint replacement surgery. Using computer assistance, your doctor will make a small incision and remove any damaged bone, cartilage or other soft tissues to prepare the area for implantation insertion after anaesthesia.
Surgeons will use a computer-controlled robotic arm to monitor your patient-specific treatment plan. Your doctor can make adjustments to this plan during surgery if necessary, and the computer device will allow the most precise insertion and protection of artificial joints and joint mechanisms.
Recovery From Hip Joint Replacement Surgery -
Depending on your individual situation, the results of a joint replacement can vary greatly. The majority of patients undergo rehabilitation, including physical therapy, with a qualified physical counsellor to help you learn how to move, typically with your implant.
All follow-up appointments are mandatory, so make sure to attend. There is a risk of infection and blood clots in any surgical procedure, but hip joint replacement surgery is considered safe.
Revision Hip Joint Replacement
The majority of patients who undergo traditional, primary total hip joint replacement surgery face a difficult path ahead of them. For convenience, this procedure is sometimes called a “ball and socket” because of the way data is collected both before and after it is carried out. Ball-and-socket hip replacement after surgery restores hip mobility for the duration of the replacement.
As with any other automated device, this replacement is vulnerable to a variety of mechanical and biological failures. In order to address the root cause of the failure and its consequences, a new hip replacement must be performed. The term “revision” refers to a total hip replacement that has been redone.
Why consider a hip joint replacement revision ?
Those elderly patients who opt for hip replacement surgery typically keep their prostheses for 15 to 20 years, if not longer. In some cases, a replacement may need to be re-done, especially if the patient has a very active lifestyle and has undergone early replacement surgery at a young age.
Patients who are going to have revision surgery have more extensive pre-surgery inquiries than those who are going to have a primary surgery.
Radiographic (x-ray), CT, or MRI imaging of the hip may be necessary to determine the exact location and fixation of the implanted parts (elements), and to determine the exact amount of bone loss around a failed implantation.
If the surgeon detects an infection in the failed hip, an aspiration (fluid sample) and/or special blood work may be necessary.
Reasons for hip revision
Revisions are carried out on a regular basis. For every 100 new hip joints installed in the United States, 18 are subsequently replaced. The following are the most frequent justifications for a revision:
- Repetitive (recurrent) dislocation of a joint replacement
- Mechanical failure (implant wear and tear – loosening or breakage)
