    The surgical procedure takes a few hours & is performed general anaesthesia. Damaged cartilage and bone are removed and then new metal, plastic, or ceramic implants are positioned to restore the alignment and function of the hip.

    • A cut is made along the side of the hip and the muscles are moved to connect them to the top of the thighbone, exposing the hip joint.
    • Next, the ball portion of the joint is removed by cutting the thighbone with a saw.
    • After this an artificial joint is attached to the thighbone using either cement or a special material that allows the remaining bone to attach to the new joint.
    • Surface of the hipbone is prepared by removing any damaged cartilage and the replacement socket part is attached to the hipbone.
    • The new ball part of the thighbone is then inserted into the socket part of the hip. A drain may be put in to help drain any fluid. The doctor then reattaches the muscles and closes the incision.



    Patient will have to stay in the hospital for 6 – 8 days. They will have to stay in bed with a wedge-shaped cushion between the legs to keep the new hip joint in place. Complete recovery can take 6-12 months.
