Hip Replacement at Fitzwilliam Hospital

What is a Hip Replacement?

A hip replacement is an operation that replaces a worn or damaged hip joint.

The hip joint can be considered as a ball and socket joint, where the femoral head (the ball that sits at the top end of the thigh bone) articulates with the acetabulum (the socket formed by the bones in the pelvis). The surgery therefore involves removing the aforementioned ball and socket, and replacing them with a prosthetic hip joint.

Your hip surgeon will discuss the procedure in depth with you.

The procedure is performed under general, epidural or spinal anaesthetic.

Your new hip joint should offer:
• pain reduction
• improved mobility
• greater functionality such as walking easier or riding a bike
• an improved quality of life
