What is Hip Replacement Surgery

The hip joint is one of the largest weight – bearing joints of the body. In routine life our hip moves millions of times without even knowing, but once it gets damaged not only does the hip become stiff, but it also becomes painful and leads to difficulty in walking.


Hip replacement surgery is a well-established and successful operation in which the damaged hip joint is replaced with an artificial hip joint. It not only provides you freedom from pain, and stiffness, but also improves quality of life. This specialized operation is now very successful and has been accepted very well both by the medical fraternity and the society.
