Total hip replacement surgery is used to replace a painful hip joint with an artificial hip prosthesis made of metal and plastic. The artificial hip replacement restores the normal function of the natural hip joint.
Like any joint replacement procedure, total hip replacement surgery will require ample time for recovery as well as appropriate physical therapy in order to achieve the best results. Hip replacement patients enjoy far less discomfort in the hip joint, better range of motion, and better function once fully healed.
