Hip Replacement Surgery in India

Total Hip Replacement Surgery is a surgical procedure that involves removing arthritis-affected hip joints and replacing them with artificial joints made of materials such as metal, plastic, and ceramic. The surgery helps relieve severe pain in the affected hip region. It improves the mobility of the hip and enables the patient to resume their daily activities, especially day-to-day activities involving hip joint movement.

When is Hip Replacement Surgery Necessary?

Following are some of the conditions for which a hip replacement surgeon in India recommends hip replacement surgery (depending on the severity of the condition).

  • Severe Osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Avascular Necrosis
  • Ankylosing Spondylitis
  • Bone fracture
  • Perthes’ Disease
  • Slipped Capital Femoral Epiphysis
  • Osteonecrosis 

Based on the symptoms the patient is experiencing, the doctor might recommend diagnostic tests – such as an X-ray, CT scan, or MRI to accurately identify the injury or diagnose the disease of the patient.  Based on the reports, the doctor will choose a treatment option that best suits the patient. 

Types of Hip Replacement Surgeries

Hip replacement surgery, also called hip arthroplasty, is generally performed  when the patient:

  • Feels extreme pain that limits one’s capability to perform daily chores
  • Worsens while walking and Interferes with sleep
  • Experiences stiffness in the hip area that prevents normal movement of the body
  • Has no scope for minimally invasive surgery

Based on the condition the patient is suffering from and the severity of the condition, the doctor will recommend one of the following Hip replacement surgeries:

Anterior approach: This approach involves surgery from the front part of the upper thigh. An incision is made on the front of the hip to move the muscles. The damaged joint parts are then cut and replaced with prosthetic material. Finally, the incision is stitched or clipped.

Posterior approach:  In this approach, the incision is made along the outer buttock.  The affected joint of the hip bones is then cut and replaced with prosthetic material.

Hip Preservation Surgery/Hip Arthroscopy: This type of surgery is performed by a laparoscopic method to remove extra bone formations, loose bodies, damaged cartilage, and inflamed tissue.

Post-Operative Recovery​

It takes six to twelve weeks to gauge the actual progress of the healing. Within this period, most people resume their normal activities to a large extent.  Physiotherapy can accelerate the process.

However, the patient must take the following steps for a speedy recovery:

  • Adopt a healthy exercise routine
  • Maintain a compatible diet and weight
  • Indulge in blood circulation-promoting exercises
  • Involve in daily household chores that improve blood flow after the surgery.

Following hip replacement surgery, bed rest usually lasts for one to three days to allow the hip joint to stabilize and recover gradually.

Walking with support under the supervision of doctors and physiotherapist and gradually moving to gentle movements promote blood circulation, keep away problems like blood clots, and speed up the healing process.

Hip replacement involves removing and replacing the hip joint. It is a surgical procedure that requires careful planning both before and after the surgery.

Even though it’s a risky treatment, hip replacement surgery is often performed by skilled orthopedic surgeons to relieve pain, increase mobility, and improve the quality of life for people. It has a high success rate and high patient satisfaction rate.

Yes, after completing their recovery and healing, patients can walk properly again because of hip replacement surgery, which aims to relieve pain and restore mobility.

With the right post-operative care and exercise, people can recover their hip joint’s strength, stability, and flexibility, allowing them to return to their regular walking routines and improving their quality of life.

You can climb stairs after hip replacement, but doing so safely and comfortably will take some time and rehabilitation. Immediately after surgery in the initial days following surgery, stair climbing is not recommended. Your doctor will likely advise using a walker or crutches for short distances on flat ground.

Physical therapy is a crucial part of recovery after hip replacement surgery. Your therapist will teach you safe techniques for climbing stairs. Gradual progression with right physiotherapy will help you gain strength and flexibility that will enable you to climb stairs without assistance. This recovery process usually takes weeks to month.


If you want to reduce pressure on the hip joint after surgery, use an elevated toilet seat or a toilet seat riser to lessen the amount of hip flexion needed while sitting or standing up.

By using handrails or grab bars for support, maintain a stable posture with the operated leg slightly forward to ensure comfort and safety during using toilet activities and to promote good recovery.

Avoid clear or high-impact exercises like running or jumping to protect the recently replaced hip joint and ensure its long-term stability over time.

Avoid bending your hips more than 90 degrees since this puts unnecessary pressure on the joint and slows down the healing process, which can cause pain and even issues. Following your doctors advice promotes a speedy recovery and reduces the risk of problems after surgery.

Most people recover after hip replacement surgery in six to twelve weeks, gradually gaining more mobility and experiencing less pain. Physiotherapy and attention to post-operative instructions can improve recovery results, helping patients regain independence and return to everyday activities with more comfort and mobility.
