Hip replacement surgery, also called hip arthroplasty, replaces damaged bone and cartilage in the hip joint with a prosthetic (artificial) implant. There are many types of prosthetic hip joint devices — including metal, plastic, or ceramic material — chosen for your specific condition and needs.
In addition to pain relief, the benefits of hip replacement surgery are improved range of motion, mobility, and quality of life.
