Understanding the Hip Joint

A. Healthy Hip

  • Joints in our body are those structures where the ends of two or more bones meet. The hip is a “ball-and-socket” joint.
  • The upper end of the thighbone (femur) is the ball. It fits into the socket in the pelvis.
  • The joint lining called synovium produces fluid that lubricates the joint. Cartilage covers the ends of the bones and cushions the hip joint for smooth, easy movement.
  • The hip joint is the largest weight-bearing joint, which is supported by muscles and ligaments that allow your legs to bend and straighten, when you walk or climb stairs.

B. Damaged Hip

  • Hip joint damage can arise due to wear and tear involved in the normal ageing process or an accident.
  • Hip joint damage generally occurs at the junction of the ball and socket.
  • A damaged hip can be very painful and reduce the quality of your life.

Causes of Hip Pain and Loss of Hip Mobility include

  • Osteoarthritis : It is a disorder in which the cartilage (tough flexible connective tissue that covers the ends of your bones at the joints) in the joints gradually breaks down, causing the surface of the bones to rub directly and wear against each other.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis : It is a disease caused by the immune system’s attack on the body’s own cells and tissues. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis suffer severe pain even at rest when no weight is put on the affected joints.
  • Trauma : Accident or injury.
  • Avascular necrosis : It is a disorder caused by the loss of blood supply to bone tissue.

Advantages and Benefits of Hip Replacement Surgery include

  • Reduced pain and inflammation : Hip replacement surgery can significantly reduce the pain and inflammation associated with hip arthritis. This can lead to a significant improvement in quality of life.
  • Improved mobility and range of motion : Hip replacement surgery can also improve mobility and range of motion in the hip joint. This can make it easier to perform everyday activities such as walking, climbing stairs, and getting dressed.
  • Increased activity level : Hip replacement surgery can allow people to participate in activities that they were unable to do before surgery due to pain and stiffness. This can include activities such as walking, biking, swimming, and playing sports.
  • Improved quality of life : With the replaced hip you will soon be able to walk and move around easily without pain and this will improve your quality-of-life. You will be able to help yourself with the regular daily activities and start enjoying life.

Getting ready for Hip Replacement Surgery

  • Physical health :
  1. As with any surgery, you should prepare yourself before hip replacement procedure. Being in good physical health is important.
  2. Stop smoking at least 2 weeks before surgery. Smoking increases the risks of heart attack, lung collapse, wound breakdown and infection.
  3. Exercises to increase the strength of your upper arm would be helpful, as you will be using your upper arms more than you expect, after surgery.
  4. Lose excess weight – It helps to ease the stress on your hip, but consult with your doctor before beginning a weight reduction plan.
  • Tests :  Your doctor will ask you to get a few tests done that will help to plan your surgery. These tests may include blood analysis, urine analysis, cardiogram and any other specific test that may be required.
  • Medications : Your surgeon may recommend that you stop taking medications like aspirin, 7-14 days before surgery. Check with your physician/doctor before discontinuing any medication.
  • Other health-related conditions : Your dental work should be completed before operation, as an infected tooth or gum can cause infection in the new hip.
