Types of Hip Replacement Surgeries
Hip replacement surgery, also called hip arthroplasty, is generally performed when the patient:
- Feels extreme pain that limits his capability to perform daily chores
- 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.
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
- Pay and maintain a compatible diet and weight
- Indulge in blood circulation promoting exercises
- Involve in daily household chores that improve the normal blood flow after the surgery.
