Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is recommended to treat damaged parts of the hip in cases of severe hip damage that affects daily routine and range of motion functions. This type of surgical operation is the procedure in which the damaged parts of the hip are replaced with man-made parts. Surgery is done to relieve hip pain and improve movement. Hip replacement surgery involves removing the damaged bone and the cartilage at the end of this bone from the hip joint and replacing it with metal or plastic parts.

  • 5-7 days hospitalisation is needed.
