Total Hip Replacement


This procedure involvs removing a diseased or damaged hip joint and replacing it with a man made joint called a prosthesis. This surgery is usually done in order to fix hip joint damage from arthritis or an injury. After recovery this operation relieves pain and restores range of motion to the joint.  This operation is done entirely under anaesthetic so that no pain is felt during the surgery. The recovery period however can be painful and usually takes around 6 months to a year. Usually the more serious pain is gone within a few weeks.
