About your Hip Replacement/Resurfacing Surgery in India:

In India, total hip replacement surgery, also known as total hip arthroplasty, is a reconstructive procedure which involves the surgical replacement of a hip joint with an artificial implant. The diseased cartilage and bone of the hip joint removed and replaced by the new prosthesis.

The hip joint is a ball and socket arrangement. The socket is part of the pelvis (hip) bone. The ball, which fits into the socket, is the uppermost part of the thighbone. In a stepwise procedure, the surgeon first removes the damaged cartilage and bone. The upper part of the thighbone is cut and the ball is removed. A special tool called a reamer is used to work on the hip socket - the damaged cartilage and bone is removed to leave an even rounded surface which can receive the new implant. The other component of the implant, containing the ball is inserted into the hollow portion of the thighbone and is fixed firmly in place. The implant material is made of natural alloy or ceramics.

In India, hip replacement surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and can last about 90 minutes. Hospital stay will be for approximately 5 days.
