What is Hip Replacement ?

A hip replacement is a common type of surgery where a damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial one (known as an implant).

Adults of any age can be considered for a hip replacement, although most are done on people between the ages of 60 and 80. The most common reason for hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis (wear & tear of bone joints).

A modern artificial hip joint is designed to last for at least 15 years. Most people have a significant reduction in pain and improvement in their range of movement.

Who needs a Hip Replacement?

Hip replacement is major surgery and should only be considered when non-surgical options such as physiotherapy, painkillers and lifestyle changes have failed. Dr. Deepak may recommend a hip replacement surgery if

  • you have severe pain, swelling and stiffness in your hip joint and your mobility is reduced

  • your hip pain is so severe that it affects your everyday tasks and sleep.

  • you're feeling depressed because of the pain and lack of mobility

Types of Hip Replacement


    Total hip replacement is the most common form of hip replacement and involves removal of the entire hip joint. Both the femoral head and acetabulum, that comprise the ball-and-socket joint are replaced with artificial parts.

    The artificial parts may be made from different materials such as plastic, metal, or ceramic and your surgeon will discuss the pros and cons of each type. Cement may be used to hold the artificial parts in place or left uncemented, with natural bone growth holding them in place. In the UK, the vast majority of patients have cemented hip replacement as this option is very successful and allows earlier mobilisation.


    A partial hip replacement involves replacing the femoral head (ball component of the ball-and-socket joint) with a metal or ceramic implant which is held within the thigh bone (femur). This type of hip replacement is typically performed to repair a hip joint in which there is a fracture of the femoral head.


    This is similar to a partial hip replacement but involves less removal of the femoral head. The arthritic surface of the femoral head is shaved down by a few millimetres and reshaped to allow a metal cap to be cemented on. The acetabulum (socket element of the bone-and-socket joint) is left unaltered.

    Hip resurfacing is only appropriate for selected patients and your surgeon will advise you whether this is a suitable option for you.

HIP Replacement Procedure

This procedure is done under anesthesia and your doctor may also recommend one dose of antibiotics to reduce the risk of infection.

During hip replacement surgery, your surgeon will make a cut (between 8 and 20 centimetres long) over your hip and thigh. They’ll then divide your hip muscles and separate (dislocate) your ball-and-socket joint.

Your surgeon will replace both the ball and socket parts of your hip joint. That means removing the ball at the top of your thigh bone and putting in a replacement on a long stem. This can either be fitted tightly into the inside of your thigh bone using a special cement. A shallow cup is made in your hip bone and an artificial socket put into it. Then your surgeon will then put your hip joint back together (they’ll fit the ball into the socket).

Finally, your surgeon will close the cut in your skin with stitches, clips or glue and cover it with a dressing.

Post Op Rehabilitation

After surgery, you may feel some discomfort or pain as the anesthetic wears off. You'll be offered pain relief if you need it. You may have a pad or pillow between your legs to hold them apart and keep your hip joint in one position. This will help to stop your hip from dislocating (moving out of position).

Getting up and starting to walk early on is an important part of your recovery. A physiotherapist will get you up and out of bed and give you some exercises to do. You’ll be given a walking frame or crutches to help you walk.

Everyone recovers differently, but it's often possible to return to light activities or office-based work within around 6 weeks. It may take a few more weeks for you to return to sports like swimming, cycling, golf, etc. or if your job involves physical work.
