Hip Replacement Condition

Total Hip Replacement

Subang Ortho Clinic

We provide a complete Hip Replacement Surgery Treatment at Subang Ortho Clinic, for patient’s whose hip is affected badly. If your hip has been damaged by arthritis, a fracture, or other conditions, common activities such as walking or getting in and out of a chair may be painful and difficult. Your hip may be stiff, and it may be hard to put on your shoes and socks. You may even feel uncomfortable while resting.

If medications, changes in your everyday activities and the use of walking supports do not adequately help your symptoms, you may consider hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement surgery is a safe and effective procedure that can relieve your pain, increase motion, and help you get back to enjoying normal, everyday activities.

Hip Replacement was first performed in 1960. Hip replacement surgery is one of the most successful operations in all of medicine. Since 1960, improvements in joint replacement surgical techniques and technology have greatly increased the effectiveness of total hip replacement.

Total joint replacement involves surgery to replace the ends of both bones in a damaged joint to create new joint surfaces.

Total hip replacement surgery uses metal, ceramic, or plastic parts to replace the ball at the upper end of the thighbone (femur) and resurface the hip socket in the pelvic bone.

Doctors may attach replacement joints to the bones with or without cement.

Cemented joints are attached to the existing bone with cement, which acts as a glue and attaches the artificial parts to the bone.

Un-cemented joints are attached using a porous coating that is designed to allow the bone to adhere to the artificial joint. Over time, new bone grows and fills up the openings in the porous coating, attaching the joint to the bone.

Doctors often use general anaesthesia for joint replacement surgeries, which means you'll be unconscious during surgery. But sometimes they use regional anaesthesia, which means you can't feel the area of the surgery and you are sleepy, but you are awake. The choice depends on your doctor, on your overall health and to some degree on what you prefer.
