What Happens During Hip Replacement Surgery?
Total hip replacement surgery involves replacing a damaged hip with an artificial joint. Your femur is rounded at the top and fits into the cup part of the pelvic bone, making a ball and socket joint. When you have total hip surgery, a metal ball with a stem is put in place at the top of your femur and a plastic-like cup is inserted into the damaged cup of your pelvic bone (called the acetabulum).
When in place, these reconstruct the hip into a functional ball and socket joint. Following this operation, the hip is progressively less painful and has good motion.
