Total hip replacement (THR) is most suited and one of the most common surgical procedures for people with very late stage degenerative hip disease. Some of the important benefits of a THR are, marked reduction in pain and improvement in sleep, most people regain range of motion, physical ability, and quality of life.

A Total Hip Replacement (THR) is a surgical procedure whereby the diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint is surgically replaced with artificial materials. It involves surgical removal of the diseased ball (the head of the thigh bone) and socket (acetabulum of the pelvis) and replacing them with a metal ball and stem inserted into the femur (thigh) bone and an artificial plastic cup socket.

The metallic artificial ball and stem are referred to as the ‘implant’ or the ‘prosthesis’. Upon inserting the prosthesis into the central core of the femur,it is fixed with a bony cement.

Each prosthesis is made up of two parts :

  • The acetabular component, or socket portion, which replaces the acetabulum.
  • The femoral component or stem portion, which replaces the femoral head.

The femoral component is made of a metal stem with a metal ball on the end. Some prosthesis have a ceramic ball attached to the metal stem. The acetabular component is a metal shell with a plastic inner socket liner that acts like a bearing. The type of plastic used is highly cross linked ultra high molecule weight Polyethylene which is wear resistant.

A cemented prosthesis is held in place by Poly Metha Acrylate (PMMA) cement that attaches the metal to the bone. An uncemented prosthesis has a fine mesh of holes on the surface area that touches the bone. The mesh allows the bone to grow into the mesh and "become part of" the bone. ** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **

Hip-ResurfacingHip Resurfacing Surgery (also known as Birmingham Hip Joint Resurfacing Surgery) was developed as an alternate for the Total Hip Replacement Surgery (THR). It is normally referred to as bone preserving surgery because unlike the Hip Joint Replacement, this surgery does not involve the cutting of the femoral head of your thigh bone thus preserving a substantial part of femur (thigh bone). Less bone is also removed from the acetabulum as compared to conventional THR.

Advantages of Birmingham Hip Resurfacing Surgery ?

  • Advanced breakthrough technique that helps restoration of full hip function. Most patients have gone back to active lifestyle even sports like competitive Judo and Squash, 8-12 weeks after the surgery.
  • Removes only unhealthy bone and replaces it with a metal on metal articulation. Retains natural bone and Femoral Head.
  • It preserves the normal bone of the hip – patients can squat, sit cross-legged without the risk of dislocation.
  • Everlasting - based on 35-year successful outcome record of Birmingham of metal on metal implants.
  • Activity restriction not required after surgery, as there is hardly any risk of dislocation. Patient can indulge in full sporting activities without risk of dislocation.
  • Overall 99% success rate - ideal option for the younger or more active patient and unlike total replacement, a less complicated revision can be done if required later in life.

** PLEASE DESCRIBE THIS IMAGE **It is a set of methods, that use computer technology for pre-surgical planning, and for guiding or performing surgical interventions. The computer guides the surgeon in precisely planning the exact amount and angle of bone to be removed during surgery.

Success Story of a Gymnast after Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip-Replacement-Treatment“I just wanted to let you know how things are going with my new hip. I've been discharged from PT and have started seeing a personal trainer. Both my PT and trainer are amazed at what I am able to do after my hip replacement in India. I also am thrilled.I am stronger than I was before and twice as determined to keep things going the right direction! I sent along a few pictures...don't worry, none of this is beyond my ability and none of it causes any pain‐if it did, I wouldn't be doing it! I'm biking,swimming, using the elliptical machine, and about 2 times a week doing a short run on the treadmill‐I hate running so I won't be pursuing any silly marathon goals or anything.

When I find out if I can hang out upside‐down, I'll send a pic of that too!


Hip-Replacement-TreatmentPlease tell everyone on your staff how amazing I feel and grateful I am for having decided to come to you with my problem! Also if you wouldn't mind, could you please tell the nurses up on the 11th floor I think?

How wonderful they were and that I'm doing well.

Feel free to inform anyone you think would like to know how I doing that things are fantastic and I am happy as can be! Thanks and will keep you updated on my progress! Read More...
