Hip replacement surgery : operations and treatment in the UK

Hip replacement

If you would like to know about hip replacement surgery, and the cost of hip replacements, the following information will be of interest to you.


Hip replacement surgery, or arthroplasty, is usually undertaken when osteoarthritis has resulted in the wearing down of the hip joint. In a hip replacement operation the worn out and arthritic parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with a new, artificial hip joint. The new hip joint is called a prosthesis. Total hip replacement surgery should improve an individual's mobility, by reducing pain and improving the function of the hip joint.
