Hip Replacement Surgery
Hip Replacement Surgery is the minimally invasive surgical procedure in which the hip joint (formed by the head of the femur and the acetabulum of the pelvis) is replaced by a prosthesis. The joint replacement can be partial or total depending on the pathology and the degree of evolution.
This operation is necessary when the patient has suffered an acetabular hip fracture, a fracture of the neck or head of the femur, or suffers from arthrosis or some degenerative or tumoral disease of the hip, among other causes, which limit the patient’s mobility and cause him/her pain.
Hip replacement surgery may be the best option when pain interferes with your daily activities and non-surgical treatments do not help or are no longer effective.
