What is Hip Replacement Surgery?
The hip is a ‘ball and socket’ joint that is susceptible to wear and tear which can be caused by injury or various bone diseases including osteoarthritis. This can often lead to severe pain and lack of mobility affecting your daily life, which will worsen over time. If medication cannot help, then the best option maybe an operation where your affected hip joint is replaced with an artificial one.
After the operation, you should be able to walk much better and carry out more of your normal activities.
