Hip Replacement Surgery Treatment Option
A hip replacement, or Arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the diseased parts of the hip are removed and replaced with an artificial joint(s).
Hip replacement is a type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one.
Adults of any age can be considered for a hip replacement, although most are carried out on people between the ages of 60 and 80.
A new modern artificial hip joint is designed to last for at least 15 years. Most people experience a significant reduction in pain and some improvement in their range of movement.
