Hip Replacement

Hip replacement is an effective surgical treatment for patients with hip joint problems. Hip replacement is performed on people whose hip joint has been damaged or affected by degenerative diseases. This procedure aims to restore natural joint movement by inserting an artificial prosthesis into the hip joint. The prosthesis is made of metal, ceramic and plastic materials and is long-lasting. Hip replacement surgery provides successful results to reduce pain, increase mobility and restore the patient's activities of daily living. Physical therapy and rehabilitation are important in the postoperative period. However, as with any surgical procedure, hip replacement surgery carries potential risks and it is important that patients talk to their doctor in detail and understand the risks. If the recovery process is generally well managed, hip replacement patients can lead an active and healthy life.
