Total Hip Replacement
Total Hip Replacement or THR procedure is conducted for the candidates, who suffer from any kind of hip arthritis. THR improves the total quality of life. It is conducted to remove the femoral head entirely and the hip that causes the trouble is replaced with a new and artificial hip. Then the prosthesis or implant is placed with a new socket and a new ball. The new ball here is attached to the stem and it would get machined in the bone of hip. The implant used for the hip replacement would wear out in some time. So, on average, the implant lasts for over 15 to 20 years, but for the younger candidates, this period is often less. After it is wearing out, revision of the same hip replacement procedure would be considered.Costing →

- The stem portion or femoral component that is used for replacing the femoral head. It is made of a stem with metal and has a metal ball in its end.
- The socket portion or acetabular component that is used for replacing the acetabulum.
Some of the prosthesis approaches use the ceramic ball that gets attached to the metal stem. The bearing is usually done with the acetabular component, which is a metal shell having an inner socket liner made with plastic. The plastic used in this is highly worn resistant, as it is cross polyethylene of ultra-high molecule weight and is highly cross-linked.
Cemented prosthesis – This prosthesis makes use of PMMA or Poly Metha Acrylate cement for attaching the metal to the hip bone.
Uncemented prosthesis – The uncemented prosthesis makes use of fine mesh that has many holes. This mesh is touched to the bone on its surface. The mesh helps the bone to grow naturally and get into the mesh so that it can become a part of the bone.
