Total hip replacement surgery is a procedure that can help people with severe hip damage and chronic hip pain. Hip replacement operations have a high rate of success in terms of restoring pain free living. People with prosthetic hips can walk without a cane, play non-impact sports and function normally.
During the operation, an incision is made on the outer aspect of the hip, 4-6 inches down the length of the leg. The top end of the thigh bone is removed and a ball on a stem is placed into it. The hip socket is hollowed out to make a shallow cup and an artificial socket is placed into it. The artificial part of the thigh bone can then fit into this socket. The prosthetic is usually made from cobalt chrome and titanium.
Hip resurfacing involves surgically replacing the arthritic surface of the hip joint with metal-on-metal parts. The purpose of the operation is to stop the bones from rubbing against each other, which causes chronic pain in patients with severe hip damage. Hip resurfacing is considered an alternative to hip replacement. In a hip replacement, the entire femoral head is replaced with manmade parts, whereas in a hip resurfacing operation, the femoral head is preserved and only the surface is replaced. Some orthopedic specialists have suggested that this bone preservation makes hip resurfacing a superior treatment to hip replacement, especially in more active, younger patients.
A knee replacement is a surgical procedure involving the replacement of the faulty knee joint with a prosthetic. During a total knee replacement, the end of the femur bone is removed and replaced with a metal shell. The end of the lower leg bone (tibia) is also removed and replaced with a plastic piece with a metal stem. Depending on the condition of the kneecap portion of the knee joint, a plastic "button" may also be added under the kneecap surface.
