Hip Surgery

It is reported that in United States, more than 250,000 surgeries for hip replacement are performed every year. The general cause of hip replacement is due to osteoarthritis or other different types of arthritis that causes severe joint damage. The patients have either stopped responding to the traditional method of treatment or it may have progressed to the level where the traditional method is not adequate.

For hip replacement, an artificially created part is replaced with the damaged one. Generally this includes the replacement of hip socket with a plastic cup, femoral head with a metal ball and femur with a metal stem.
