Total Hip Replacement
Total hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which the damaged cartilage and bone is removed from the hip joint and replaced with artificial components.
The hip joint is also known as a ball and socket joint, where the ball (femoral head) of the thigh bone fits into the socket (acetabulum) of the pelvis bone.
Revision hip replacement surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. During the procedure, your surgeon will make an incision over the hip to expose the hip joint.
