Hip Replacement Surgery

What is Hip Replacement Surgery?

Hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure performed when the hip joint is damaged or worn out. This surgery is generally preferred in cases such as osteoarthritis, post-traumatic deformity, and hip fractures. Hip replacement surgery involves removing damaged parts of the hip joint and replacing them with a prosthesis made of metal, ceramic or plastic.

Hip replacement surgeries performed at MSM Clinic by our team specialized in orthopedics and traumatology aim to improve the quality of life of our patients. The post-operative rehabilitation process is also important and is supported by physiotherapy and exercise programs prepared by the expert physiotherapists of our clinic. The purpose of this surgery is to reduce patients’ pain, help them regain their mobility, and enable them to perform their daily activities more comfortably.

What are the Types of Hip Prosthesis?

Types of hip prosthesis may vary depending on the patient’s needs and condition. Some of the hip prosthesis types we offer as MSM Clinic are:

  • Total hip replacement: This type of prosthesis replaces both components (femoral head and pelvis) placed in the hip joint. A metal cup is placed on the femoral head, while a plastic or ceramic cup is placed in the pelvis.
  • Half hip prosthesis: half hip prosthesis is usually used to replace half of the femoral head (thigh bone). It is preferred only when the femoral head part is damaged or broken. It does not change the pelvic part. This type of prosthesis is generally preferred in the elderly and inactive patient group.
  • Revision hip prosthesis: In cases where a previous hip prosthesis fails or is damaged, this prosthesis may need to be revised or replaced. In this case, revision hip prosthesis is applied.
  • Specially designed hip prostheses: These are prostheses specially designed according to the anatomical structure and needs of each patient. It can be applied to patients with a specific disease (tumor, etc.). These prostheses are custom-made according to the measurements and requirements to ensure the best fit for the patient’s hip joint.

To decide which of these types is suitable for the patient, an evaluation is made by our expert orthopedic surgeon, taking into account the patient’s hip joint condition, age, activity level and other health factors. As a result of this evaluation, the most suitable type of hip prosthesis is determined.

Is Hip Replacement Surgery Risky?

Hip replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that can have serious consequences. However, when performed by experienced surgeons and appropriate medical facilities, successful results are usually achieved. In fact, hip replacement surgery has the highest satisfaction rates of all surgical procedures.

One of the most concerning complications during this surgery is the risk of infection. Therefore, meticulous precautions must be taken to reduce the risk of infection. If infection develops, the prosthesis may need to be replaced and the patient may need to receive antibiotic treatment for a long time. However, when proper protocols are followed, the risk of infection is very low.

With modern prosthetic designs and technologies, the lifespan of prosthetics has increased significantly. However, factors such as excessive physical activity or use of incorrect materials may shorten the life of the prosthesis. Additionally, the accumulation of particles resulting from wear at the bone-prosthesis interface may cause the prosthesis to loosen, resulting in irreversible bone loss. Therefore, if such situations are encountered, revision surgery may be required and this surgical procedure should only be performed by highly experienced medical personnel.

There is a risk of blood clots forming after hip replacement surgery, but this risk can be reduced or treated by taking appropriate precautions. Other potential complications include prosthesis dislocation, nerve and vascular damage, and fractures around the prosthesis. Hip replacement surgery is a serious surgical intervention and should be performed in healthcare facilities with appropriate medical equipment and experience. It is important that patients are appropriately managed and monitored preoperatively and postoperatively. As MSM Clinic, we will be following the necessary steps throughout this process.
