  • Hip Replacement Surgery

  • hip and ball jointDuring hip surgery, the surgeon replaces the area between the femur and the pelvis with an implant that fits the patient's body. The implant consists of two components: a shaft with a ball that is implanted in the femur, and a cup implanted in the pelvis. The ball of the femur rotates within the cup, allowing the hip to function
    hipTo perform a successful total hip replacement, the surgeon has to precisely position the implant components relative to the patient's pelvis and femur. Accurate joint alignment will reduce post-operative complications that can possibly lead to additional surgery. A successful total hip replacement can be like having a healthy hip as it allows the leg to move freely within its normal range of motion.
