TOTAL HIP REPLACEMENT (TOTAL HIP ARTHROPLASTY)
Those suffering from arthritis are well aware of the influence this disease has had on the quality of their lives. They are usually forced to continually take medication, which both has side effects and does not provide complete relief, except in the early stages. They are also aware that their ability to move is slowly being restricted which affects their independence, their social lives and their health in general.
This surgical procedure is a true gift from modern Orthopaedics to people suffering from degenerative arthritis of the hip. It was first performed approximately 40-50 years ago and has drastically improved the quality of life of millions of people around the world since then.
The new surgically replaced hip guarantees freedom of movement without pain for at least 20 years.
Nowadays, it is a perfectly safe operation whose complication rate is less than 1-2%.
