Hip replacement is a surgery in which the damaged parts of your hip joints are removed and replaced with prosthetic implant, also known as a hip prosthesis. A total hip replacement or a hemi (half) replacement are two options for hip replacement surgery. In most cases, joint replacement orthopedic surgery is performed to relieve arthritis discomfort or to treat hip fractures.
Some of the problems that might cause deterioration to the hip joint and requiring hip replacement surgery include:
You'll be taken to a recovery room for a few hours after surgery until your anesthesia wears off. Your blood pressure, pulse, pain or comfort level, and medication needs will all be monitored by medical personnel.
The length of your stay after surgery is determined by your specific needs. Most people are discharged on the very same day.
A physical therapist (physiotherapist) will assist you with exercises that you will have to do in the hospital and at home to help you heal more quickly.
Physical activity and mobility must be a regular part of your day to restore joint and muscle function. Your physical therapist (physiotherapist) will recommend mobility and strengthening exercises as well as help you learn how to use a walking aid such as a cane, crutches, or walker. As your rehabilitation progresses, you'll typically increase the weight you place on your leg until you're capable of walking without assistance.
