Why THR

Osteoarthritis of the hip joint is the most common reason for people opting in favour of Hip Replacement surgery. Hip Replacement is an option worth considering if there is severe pain, loss of motion or deformity of hip joint. Hip replacement is also used in people with hip injuries, rheumatoid arthritis and other medical conditions, such as a bone tumor or bone loss due to insufficient blood supply (avascular necrosis).

Symptoms requiring hip replacement:

  • Pain that keeps one awake at night
  • Little or no relief from pain medications
  • Difficulty walking up or down stairs
  • Trouble standing from a seated position
  • Having to stop activities such as walking, because of pain

Earlier Hip replacement was an option primarily for adults aged 60 and above. But rapid improvements in medical technology has made strong and longer lasting artificial joints easily available that are suitable for even active and younger people. However, active people face the possibility of another surgery to replace worn out artificial hip joints after 15 or 20 years.

Preparing for THR

Before the surgery an orthopedic surgeon will counsel the patient in person and carry out examination and evaluation. The surgeon will thoroughly check the patient’s medical history so as to ensure that the patient is healthy enough to undergo surgery. The surgeon will physically examine the hip, paying attention to the range of motion in your joint and the strength of the muscles around the hip. Blood tests, and X-ray or other radiological investigations are routine procedures that may be required.
