Total Hip Replacement

Mehmet İşyar, M.D. Prof

Total hip replacement refers to a surgical procedure in which the damaged or worn natural joint surfaces on the hip joint are replaced with artificial implants. This procedure is performed for individuals whose quality of life is negatively affected by hip joint pain, limited mobility or hip arthritis. Total hip replacement is also commonly referred to as “hip replacement” or “hip replacement surgery”.

Total hip replacement surgery can be performed for the following purposes:

1. **Arthritis Treatment:** In cases where the cartilages on the hip joint are worn or damaged, to relieve pain and restore mobility.

2. **Hip Fractures:** For the treatment or repair of fractures in the hip bone or surrounding bones.

3. **Hip Pain:** To alleviate the pain of patients whose quality of life has decreased due to hip joint pain or damage and to help them regain their function.

Total hip replacement surgery is the process of removing damaged areas on the hip joint and placing artificial implants. These implants are designed to restore hip joint function and relieve pain.

After surgery, patients usually participate in rehabilitation and physical therapy programs. These programs help patients regain hip joint function and mobility. The recovery process may vary depending on the individual patient’s condition and post-surgical complications.
