The fitting of a total hip replacement is an operation that involves replacing the entire hip joint. This procedure is indicated in cases of arthrosis, femoral neck fracture or hip necrosis.
The total hip prosthesis consists in two parts: acetabular component and femoral component.
This procedure can be performed either internally or by resurfacing.
The operation can last one hour under general anesthesia or spinal anesthesia.
Post-operative pain is manageable with painkillers and you can walk the day after the operation with the help of a physiotherapist.
Your surgeon will give you instructions and recommendations to follow.
