Hip Replacement Surgery

Hip replacement is a common type of surgery in which a damaged hip joint (known as a prosthesis) is replaced with an artificial prosthesis. Adults of all ages can be considered for hip replacement, but most are performed in people between 60 and 80 years old.

A modern artificial hip joint is designed to last at least 15 years. Most people experience a significant reduction in pain and some improvement in range of motion. The most common cause of hip replacement surgery is osteoarthritis. Other conditions that can cause hip joint damage include:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Hip fracture
  • Septic arthritis
  • Ankylosing spondylitis
  • Disorders that cause unusual bone growth (bone dysplasia)

How Is Hip Replacement Surgery Performed?

Hip replacement can be performed under general anaesthesia or under an epidural. The surgeon makes an incision inside the hip, removes the damaged hip joint and replaces it with an artificial joint made of metal alloy or, in some cases, ceramic. The surgery usually takes about 60-90 minutes. It is usually possible to return to light activities or office-based work within about 6 weeks after the surgery. However, everyone heals differently and it is best to talk to your doctor or physical therapist about when to return to normal activities.
