Hip replacement

What is hip replacement surgery?

Hip replacement surgery is a procedure which involves surgical removal of a painful hip joint and replaces it with an artificial joint usually made of metal or plastic components.

Why hip replacement surgery is needed?

Hip replacement surgery is necessary when you have diseases that are not cured by medications, which include; Osteoarthritis, which is mostly known as wear-and-tear arthritis, causing damage to slick cartilage that covers the ends of bones. Rheumatoid arthritis, which is occurred due to an overactive immune response and produces a type of inflammation, resulting in damaged and deformed joints. Osteonecrosis, which is caused due to reduced blood supply to the hip joint that might occur from a dislocation or fracture, thereby leading to bone deformation.

How long does it take to complete the hip replacement surgery procedure?

The average hip replacement surgery lasts for one to two hours.

How long does it take to recover following a hip replacement surgery?

After the surgery, you will have to stay in the hospital for four to six days. Usually, physiotherapy will begin the next day of surgery and you will be able to walk with a walker, crutches, or a cane within days. Physiotherapy should be continued for weeks to months following the surgery. Many patients will resume their daily activities within 12 weeks following surgery. But in some patients, it may take up to 6 months to completely recover following a hip replacement.

How much does it cost for a hip replacement surgery procedure approximately?

In India, it costs anywhere between INR 225,000 and INR 475,000, depending on the hospital and facilities provided.
