Hip Joint Replacement Surgery in India - An Overview

The first hip replacement surgery in India was performed around 1970. Since then, hip replacement surgeons and hospitals in India have become world leaders at this procedure, in terms of both expertise and experience and Mittal Nursing Home is one of them. Given the large number of total & partial hip joint replacement surgeries performed in India, hip surgeons from India are actually working together with global leaders in the production of artificial joints, to design implants customised for the Indian anatomy.

The best hip joint replacement & resurfacing hospitals in India are thus able to offer a success rate of 99% in joint replacements, and that too at the lowest cost of total or partial hip joint replacement & resurfacing surgery, in the world.

There are many different causes of pain in the hip joint. These include primary osteoarthritis, or secondary arthritis due to fractures/ dislocations, rheumatoid arthritis; and osteonecrosis (AVN) (restricted blood flow to the bone).

In a total hip replacement surgery, the painful parts of the damaged hip are replaced with artificial hip parts called prosthesis, a device that substitutes a joint. The prosthesis consists of metal components: a socket, ball, and stem. The outer shell of the socket is usually made of metal and the inner shell consists of plastic, or ceramic: or the entire socket may be plastic. Patients suffering from a variety of hip disorders are regularly treated at Mittal Nursing Home. Special importance is given to thorough analysis, treatment procedure, and use of sophisticated medical equipment.

What is Hip Join Replacement or Total Hip Joint Replacement

Total Hip Replacement is a joint replacement procedure, where the femur (thighbone head) is completely removed and replaced in patients commonly affected by osteoarthritis of the hip.

Here are two major types of artificial hip replacements - Cemented Prosthesis and the Uncemented Prosthesis. Both types of prosthesis are widely used.

Each prosthesis is made up of two parts :

  • The acetabular component, or socket portion, which replaces the acetabulum.
  • The femoral component or stem portion, which replaces the femoral head.

The femoral component is made of a metal stem with a metal ball on the end. Some prosthesis have a ceramic ball attached to the metal stem. The acetabular component is a metal shell with a plastic inner socket liner that acts like a bearing. The type of plastic used is highly cross linked ultra high molecule weight Polyethylene which is wear resistant.

A cemented prosthesis is held in place by Poly Metha Acrylate (PMMA) cement that attaches the metal to the bone. An uncemented prosthesis has a fine mesh of holes on the surface area that touches the bone. The mesh allows the bone to grow into the mesh and "become part of" the bone.
