Hip replacement surgery in Hyderabad – When it is required? When Hip pain becomes severe and unbearable people resort to taking medications and injections and other non-surgical interventions. When such measures don’t work or help are no longer appear to be effective, they seek the help of an orthopedic surgeon. In these cases, the best option and the only option that remains for them is hip replacement surgery or total hip arthroplasty.

Why Hip Replacement Surgery is Done?

The cartilage surrounding the bones of the hip joint and the bones get damaged due to arthritis. Arthritis is a progressive condition that interferes with the functioning of the joint as the hip joint deteriorates owing to day-to-day wear and tear.

Conditions that can damage the hip joint, sometimes making hip replacement surgery necessary, include:

Osteoarthritis of the hip joint or infectious arthritis is the most common cause of damage to the hip joint. This type of arthritis damages the smooth cartilage that covers the bones of the hip joint and helps in the smooth movement of the hip joint. Osteoarthritis is also known as wear and tear arthritis.

Osteonecrosis: The hip joint may not get enough blood supply owing to a fracture, injury, or dislocation. When this happens, the ball and socket portion of the joint may deform and collapse resulting in osteonecrosis.

Rheumatoid arthritis: It is an autoimmune disorder. In this type of arthritis, the immune system becomes overactive and thus produces antibodies against the body’s own cells especially the cells of the joint cartilage and bones. This type of arthritis causes inflammation that destroys the hip joint cartilage and the surrounding bones resulting in deformed and damaged hip joints.
