Total Hip Replacement Surgery
Complex Primary THR
What is THR Surgery?
Total hip replacement surgery is the replacement of the damaged, worn out cartilage & articular surface of the hip joint.
What is arthritis?
Arthritis is the damage and wear out of the cartilage, that line the joint surface, leading to pain caused by the contact of the bone ends causing a gritty feeling and difficulty in movements of the joint.
Osteoarthritis of the hip joint is caused by a multi-factorial list of causes, that erode the cartilage lining the head of the femur and the acetabulum, causing pain due to contact between the bone ends, hindering daily activities like walking, sitting, squatting and sitting cross legged.
THR surgery procedure
Total Hip Replacement surgery is done to replace the articular / joint surfaces of the hip joint, it is done by replacing the head of the femur, with the help of a femoral prosthesis and then resurfacing the acetabulum and fixing a cup into it, which then articulate and give a near to normal joint motion.
Post THR Rehabilitation
Post Total Hip Replacement, there is a customized physiotherapy program, designed for the individual, to regain and also to strengthen all the muscle groups involved, the individual is made to walk, the day after surgery with a walking aid, a walker / crutch, which is weaned off gradually.
THR prosthesis – types and design evolution
THR prosthesis have evolved over time, and now designed to give a longer prosthesis life-span, to heal as normal as a native joint, to aid in recovery and integration.
A variety of types and designs are available, which are carefully evaluated to fit the need of the individual to the degree of the joint damage, to aid in perfect fit.
Alternatives to THR in young patients?
Many young individuals are now suffering due to hip arthritis, and to cater their needs and to delay the joint replacement surgery many treatment protocols have been designed, which include non-operative course, physiotherapy, stem cell therapy, many other minor surgical procedures, to aid in treatment of the hip arthritis pain.
