Total Hip Joint Replacement Surgery Procedure
Total Hip joint replacement surgery is performed under Epidural + Spinal anesthesia. An intravenous line will be started in your arm or hand. Your heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and blood oxygen level will be constantly monitored during the procedure. The surgeon will make an incision in the hip. Then the surgeon will remove the damaged portion of the hip joint and put the Implant. The artificial hip joint is made up of a stem with circular head that goes into the thighbone (Femur), and then the cup is put inside the socket of the hip joint (Acetabulum). This may be done using the bone cement (Cemented THR) or without the bone cement (Uncemented THR). The incision will be closed with stitches or surgical staples.
