A hip replacement procedure is done to relieve pain and return proper function to the hip joint. The following is general information about the procedure.
Typical hip replacement surgery can take from one and a half to three hours. The ball and socket joint consists of the head of the femur or thigh bone (shaped like a ball) and the acetabulum (a cup-shaped indentation in the pelvis within which the femoral head rotates).
The surgical team follows the steps below when performing a hip replacement procedure:
The patient usually starts physical therapy the day after surgery. The physical therapist teaches the patient normal movements such as how to bend, stand, or sit to avoid injury and destabilizing the hip. Patients also learn exercises to strengthen the new hip.
Most patients use a walker or crutches after the first four to six weeks, then a cane for another four to six weeks. After that, most patients are able to walk on their own. However, full recovery from hip replacement surgery can take many more weeks.
