High Flex Knee ReplacementHip Replacement in India

Types of  Bilateral Hip replacement
  • Simultaneous bilateral Hip replacement -When both the knees are replaced at same time in one surgery  its known as simultaneous bilateral  knee replacement ,
  • Staged bilateral Hip replacement  – in this  both knees are replaced at different time interval it is called staged bilateral knee replacement.
  • Hip resurfacing- Resurfacing the original socket and the ball of the  thigh bone. This type of surgery  has a lower risk of dislocation and the patient  may be able to return to a higher level of physical activity
  • Minimally invasive total hip replacement – minimizes the soft tissue damage leading to shorter recovery time , less chances of post operative complications .
Diagnosis for Hip Replacement surgery :
  • Osteoarthritis, is a degenerative joint  disease also known as wear and tear arthritis wherein the normal smooth surface of bone wears off resulting in bone to bone contact producing pain .
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, in which the synovial membrane becomes inflamed. This membrane then produces excessive synovial fluid, damaging the articular cartilage.
  • Trauma – serious hip injury or fracture leading to damage of articular cartilage
  • Necrosis – If there is inadequate blood supply to the ball portion of the hip joint, the bone may collapse and deform.
  • Developmental dysplasia, congenital dislocation of hip
Tests before Hip Replacement Surgery
  • Medical history present and past  – to know about the extent and duration of  pain , past injury , surgeries performed if any
  • Physical examination done to understand the motion , stability of the joint
  • X rays and MRI to determine the extent of damage, condition of bones and soft tissue .
Symptoms for Hip Replacement

  • Debilitating pain persists
  • Limiting mobility

  • Next step surgeon  dislocates  the joint and removes  the femoral head from acetabulum.
  • Damaged cartilage within acetabulum removed and discarded, Inner hollow surface of acetabulum  is reshaped for acetabular metal prosthesis  which is secured with special cement or screws .
  • Femoral head is replaced with metal stent which consists of distal ball like structure and stem of metal shaft .
  • The new ball part of the thighbone is then inserted into the socket part of the hip
  • Once acetabular and femur component are in place , they are checked to see the movement and stability of hip joint , X ray done to verify if joint is properly positioned or not
  • Subcutaneous tissue closed with staples
  • Cast put for about 2 weeks

After surgery

  • Transferred to recovery area and kept in observation
  • Antibiotics and pain killer medicine will be administered .
  • Patient will have to stay in the hospital for 6-8 days. Stitches or staples will be removed approximately 2 weeks after surgery. Patient will be able to resume his normal daily activities within 3 to 6 weeks following surgery.
