What is Total Hip Replacement, And When is it Necessary?

Total hip replacement surgery involves removing worn or damaged parts of the hip joint—a ball-and-socket joint that consists of the head of the femur bone (the ball) and the acetabulum (the socket) in the pelvis—and replacing them with artificial components to restore joint function. This procedure has a high success rate and can significantly improve quality of life for some patients.

The hip joint is cushioned by smooth cartilage that helps facilitate fluid, comfortable movement. Osteoarthritis can cause this cartilage to deteriorate, potentially leading to significant pain, stiffness, and reduced range of motion. While many people with osteoarthritis are able to find relief from their symptoms without total hip replacement surgery, it may be a viable treatment option for individuals whose pain:

  • Does not respond to more conservative measures like physical therapy, medications, walking supports, and joint injections
  • Makes it difficult to perform basic movements like walking, standing up, or lifting a leg
  • Is severe, even when at rest

Osteoarthritis isn’t the only reason to consider total hip replacement. Other conditions can also damage the hip joint and cause severe pain and dysfunction, including:

  • Hip injuries and post-traumatic arthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteonecrosis
  • Anatomical hip abnormalities

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
